To Soak or Not to Soak Seeds - Part 4

After 2 weeks the seeds performing the worst were Batch 3 (the seeds soaked in tap water with soap for 2 days). Even the dry seeds had more sprouts at this point and Batch 1 was starting to show signs of Tomato leaves, no longer solely sprout leaves.  I feel comfortable at this point concluding that you should soak your seeds in tap water.  Next batch, I will test soaking times against each other (1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 days).
