Re: Cult: enhanced germination

Donald , 

How long did you your enhanced germination experiment last ?  I found
that most  of my seeds didn't germinate before 120 days but I didn't
remove them from the fridge frequently as you did.  Don't give up until
you see what percentage of your seeds finally sprout.  You
might be surprised.

I'm about to start soaking my seeds as soon as I find a suitable way to
keep my crosses from getting mixed up.
