I forgot that was you, but at least maybe someone new read my post as well. Many of those gratus seeds were not good, so you should have really good luck on good seeds.

I wouldn't cap those, they should germinate just fine without this procedure.:

I will keep that in mind. I try to keep my articles short enough so people don't lose interest. (which they do) But if I could write everything I know about germination, it would probably be a long chapter for a book. In fact, I could probably expand each article into a chapter and mention every detail on each subject. Hopefully, someday, I can write that book for you and send you a signed copy.
