>> soaking seeds in water for 10 days,
>> changing water every day.
I have noticed that after several weeks of water changes the seeds not
longer float and sink to the bottom of the container. Do you think this
is relevent? In nature, a seed which falls into the water would float
away and, when it finally sank, would be far enough removed from the
parent to establish a new colony; perhaps an evolutionary response to
overcome overcrowding. I wondered if waiting until the seed sink would
improve the germination rate? Any thoughts or experience?
