Point of curoisity.

Has anyone tried starting seeds this way

Make a small slit in seed starting medium, Plant seed straight up
with the radicale side (where the root starts) down. Planted just
deep enough to cover the top of the seed

The reason I tried this, I was getting some seeds where the roots
 went up and the tops went down (Hmm.recall something else in life
 like that)

My results were a day or 2 faster emergence, but I had more seedlings
that did not loose the seed coat.
