you for the response, Sharon. You are
probably right. And welcome back to Iris-photos. I missed you for a
long time. Your postings are always so informative. Just about
everything I know about pigments and genetics I learned from you.

afraid that seeds in a glass container may have a hard time figuring out up
from down. I think that depends on light, light being up and dark being
down. If I am mistaken about this, someone let me know.
experience, the most important factor is gravity. I found that even seeds
that sprouted in the refrigerator's dark vegetable drawer would send their
leaves up and roots down if they had not been tumbled. In contrast, any
setup that allowed the seeds to change orientation could lead to misshappen
seedlings. This is one reason I came to prefer perlite. It not only
controls the moisture but holds the seeds in place and makes it easy to
reposition them properly after inspection.
