Re: Panorama


We have now been propogating ferns here in New Zealand for approx ten years.
Mainly focusing on our natives but with a few exotics.
I am finally starting to realize that the spore viability drops off rather
sharply with some species & always is best to sow fresh.
With the case that many of our native species only have a window to collect
one time of year we have to store for a season doing small regular sowings.
Has anyone further looked at the spore storage idea since the article in
Fern Hort. Past present & Future Perspectives?
This had reserch on a hydrated spore storage idea on agar.
I feel we need to develop a better spore storage way if we are to have
viable spore over a longer period of time.
Appreciate any thoughts on the above.
