Re: [IGSROBIN] G phaeum germination


G. phaeum is, I believe, a sub-alpine.  Some of those species require either
straification, or alternating periods of cool and warmth to germinate.  Here
is a method I have used to germinate stubborn seeds:

Moisten a paper towel or paper napkin, and place in zip-lock baggie
Nuke baggie for about 20 seconds on high
Nick seed coat with razorblade-I just cut off about .1mm of the tip
Place seed in wet paper and cover
Alternate baggie in fridge and at room temp.

Good luck.
