Re: Cult: enhanced germination


>How long did you your enhanced germination experiment last ?

Started the seeds on June 25.  The 'spring' portion ran longer because
I didn't know where to go from there.  I ended up putting them through
another 4 week 'winter' cycle, but only three more seeds from one cross

Not giving up.   The seeds may never sprout, but they didn't rot and still
look good.  So I put them in pots and will leave them outside to see if
any will sprout next spring along with the others.  Most of my seed pods
were handled this way.

I've rather liked the stocking idea given on this list.  I can run a whole
of pods up the leg separated by knots.  I keep a list starting at the toe
identifying each cross.  And I really do use the toilet tank.  Sure does
the water changed.  I had some pretty good germination percentages on
some pods last year.  But I may not be dealing with the number of pods
you have either (I'm recalling a post by Walter when he commented on
the number of pods he was watching grow last summer).
