The first to germinate obviously does so without a chemical signal from 
it's peers. I wonder if this is a genetic predisposition. If so, it 
might be possible to selectively breed for seeds which break germination 
more rapidly. I'd like to see someone trying to put a label on that 
first little seedling in the group.
