Anyone ever grow this variety? I tried to start it indoors two weeks ago, and do far, nothing. They haven't germinated. I have them under lamps, with heating mat. Any advice?

Soil temp for germination 65-70F & takes 3-18 days to germinate. Growing on temp 60-65F & takes 8-10 weeks till large enough to set out

RE: Sunflower Aztec Sun

hmm.... I don't have any advice, but I started mine about a month ago, indoor by the windsill, without heating mat, and all seeds germinated in about 7 days!

They grow so fast so they became quite leggy. Since it is still early in the season, I am going to just start over directly outdoor.
