Okra doesn’t like wet media. This is the most usual suspect when questioning why okra won’t germinate. I like to place my seeds directly into soil, and water just enough to wet the area and keep just that small area moist until germination, or you can get the soil slightly moist before planting.

Make sure that when you squeeze the soil, no drops of water come out. If you see excess water at all then it is too wet.
