Hello marc and weclome to the forum!

Under perfect conditions, seeds can germinate within 2 weeks. I think it's normal for them to take 3 to 5 weeks. I have some in tissue culture right now that are just starting to germinate and they've been in there for 16 weeks.

Yes, this is perfectly normal. Sometimes it can take up to 5 weeks to see germination. The longest I've waited so far is actually about 10 weeks, but that was with seed in tissue culture. When I've sown them on peat moss, they usually start germinating in 3 to 4 weeks.

Whats the difference between tissue culture and regular gernimating?

In tissue culture, the seedlings will grow much faster.

Because they don't have any pathogens to deal with and they are given very good growing conditions such as 100% humidity and all of the nutrients they need.
