hello,thats what i have been doing for the last 2 days.i have been reading tap root up,tap root down,people arguing which way is better depending on the size of the root.it is very confusing.i might just put it on its side.lol.
thanks

The tap root has to be buried down so it can continue to follow water down and further penetrate the medium; therefore pushing the sprout up.. :D

try and grasp this..

ROOTS grow DOWN
LEAVES grow UP

make an informed decision

exactly. u see our grows. we are not lying to u. roots grow down naturally due to gravity. water is below them always as water drains down into the dirt, so the roots will follow. i have had to save many seedling that i just thru into a rapid rooter or dirt. everytime im thinking where is my plant i saw it was cracked b4 now its not showing. low and behold i had dropped it in and it fell the wrong way and i didnt realize it. so i have had to go digging to right it.
so make sure ur root is down and the seed part is up. the root will grow down and push the seed head upwards towards the top of the soil and reaching for the sky
but hey go ahead and plant with the root up and watch ur seeds seldom pop out og the ground. they will be burying themselves deeper into the medium wasting its energy til it has none left. might as well call it an abortion
