Below is a picture of a bermuda grass seedling 21 Days after planting - Air temps were 80° and higher during the establishment period - Planted on April 7, - Picture taken on April 28th. -- Note the brownish / purplish leaf colors, often causing the grass to be mistaken for a weed or not easily seen against a gray soil background. This is a result of soil nutrient deficiency.

How Long For Bermuda Grass Seed Germination

Bermuda Grass can take anywhere from 7 days to over 30 days to germinate. This all depends on planting depths, rainfall and/or irrigation, and especially soil temperatures. Soil temperatures must be above 70° or higher for the seeds to begin the germination process. Until that time they will simply lay in the soil and rest. To have a 70° + degree soil temperature requires day time temperatures of 80°. The higher the soil temperature (with adequate moisture), generally the faster (sooner) the seeds will germinate. --- Bermudas need temperatures between 70° and 95° for germination.

Keep in mind that "germination" means that the seed have just started to actively grow. Prior to that the seed was in a state of suspended "life" with everything slowed down. Once the germination process starts the first seedlings that emerge out of the soil (like those in the picture above) will be very small "baby like" plants. Nothing like the final adult plants they will soon become. They are often hard to see because of their tiny size and color similar to a soil color.  Bermuda is also occasionally mistaken for weeds because of the "brownish" color of the leaves that the baby seedling grass has. It will still be another 1-3 months before these baby plants grow large enough to provide a user with a usable grass lawn. This of course if the grass was planted in the spring / early summer and adequate soil moisture and correct maintenance practices are used.

And just like a real baby, they need constant feeding, watering and care during their growth to adult stature.
