Re: Unfinished projects ...

Hello Cynthia,

The IGS seed project was not yet started. In my "to do list" I planned to
start 1 september (1999 of course). I will do it this week and I will
monitor the germination for about two weeks. Then I am in Indonesia for 2 or
three weeks and after that I will report the results.

In the past period I have done some own seed project with a lot of difficult
(?) hoarea seeds. This shows a germination pattern of about 33% in two
weeks, 50% in three weeks, 58 % in four weeks, 62% in five weeks etc. And a
germination of 66% in three months time. So one third germinates in a short
time (two weeks), one third germinates in a period of three weeks to three
months and one third did not germinate within three months and I expect the
germination rate of these remaining seeds to be very low. I used standard
potting soil and I kept this soil very wet. Most of the seedlings have
allready died. I think because of the poor light conditions, the wet soil
and the bad treatment by me.
