Dear Sri junaids,
The Ideal temperatures for germination of Papaya seeds is in between 19 Centigrade to 28 centigrade. Humidity must be between 60 to 80. The trays or covers must be in shade, preffarably in dark till germinates. Generally it takes 10 days to 25 days for germination of papaya seeds .
Hope they will, germinate shortly. Hope the best.

oh well thank you Mr Rao. i would wait n try to maintain moisture upto 60 or 80…
one more thing to ask is it fine ,i remove a seed from one bag and checked it it was dry no change , any chance it will grow or get distroy as i disturbd the seed …
i appriciate your rpely pls suggest
Dear Sri Junaids sir,
Please don’t make the soil wet much. Spray only required water on the covers or crates media, in which seeds are soaked.
Sir, for increasing humidity, wet the surface, walk ways and arrange spraying water on curtains all around etc, if you want to increase the humidity, ie; in the surrounding Air, mostly.
No problem sir, it will germinate , if the tip is unaffected.
Have you purchased the seeds from a reliable source or not. This also can change the germination.
With best wishes sir, g.p.Rao, farmer
