Potassium nitrate. Sometimes hard to find. In Florida, where I used it last, I got it from a pharmacy. Pure stuff, 6 ozs for a couple of bucks, and enough to make a couple of barrels of solution.

Is this the same idea as soaking them in a saltpeter solution? I have
tried that and it does work better than without.

Very good. Keep me informed.

Incidentally, I recently heard that soaking seeds for 4-5 hours in
very strong black tea works as well as sanding and takes a lot less
effort. Haven't tried it so not too sure it works... but the source
has a wonderful garden.

Hey Jim-
My friend who was looking for the chipilin was finally able to get a
friend in Mexico to send some seeds.  We planted some inside last
week- tried a bunch of different methods to see what helped boost
success (soaking in water, cold period in fridge, sanding with sand
paper, regular planting, planting of soil surface).  So far, the
sanded ones are winning by a mile!!  It is so exciting, we have a
couple of very tiny, but healthy plants growing.
