Seed Germination


I am assuming for a moment that because you addressed your inquiry to the
Aroid list you want information on stimulation of germination in the
Araceae. Not that there are none, but I am unaware of any publications
devoted to techniques/problems in germination of seeds of Araceae. My
limited experience (primarily tropicals) suggests that seed germination in
this family of plants is in general rather simple. There are exceptions
and some have been discussed here, the most recent being germination of
Amorphophallus henryi. 
On the other hand, if you are interested in germnination stimuli in other
families, I suggest you review "Seed Germination Theory and Practice", 2nd
ed., by Norman C. Deno. Deno has also published a supplement to the 2nd
edition. In these publications are the results of his experiments with
numerous genera, stimulators and inhibitors of germination.
