All my seeds in cactus soil and peat moss have cracked. I did a few second dip in a copper plant disease (killer?) spray because they had began to have white patches of mold because  of my improper germination methods. Since then the seeds have continued to crack and swell but also developed blue shards around them all though Ive washed and wiped them off after sitting them in the solution for a few seconds. Are they bound to die or am witnessing them germinate?
Feel free to pm me if you have any ANNONACEAE for sale‼️

there's a beneficial fungus that often means it's about to germinate but also some seeds were about to germinate but couldn't open the hard coat and such then died off. the smell is a good indicator if it's good or bad. annona seeds are pretty hard to germinate once they are dormant.
