I have seeds but I can't get them to germinate. I put them in seeding pods after soaking them for a day or so..... What should I do?

Start seeds by soaking in hot water for 48 hours before surface sowing them on a tray of rich potting mix.
When the water cools replace it with hot water again.
Cover with a very fine layer of vermiculite.
The seeds need light to germinate.
Keep soil moist but not wet.
A mister bottle of water is good for watering.
Temperatures need to be between 75 and 85 degrees F
A heated germination mat is needed for this.
You should see sprouts in approx 4 weeks, in some cases longer.
