    Unhappy

    ok i got both of my seeds packs in today(thank you JB_orchidguy and Phissionkorps!!) and i noticed with some seeds from both packes they were crushed probably due to the fact that they were treated the way other letters were treated. anyways will this inhibit the germintation of the seeds? when i say crushed for S. minor i mean the outer coat it cracked and the dark inner part is visible.

    Hard to say as it depends on whether the seed was damaged when the seed coat got cracked. Planting them will be the easiest way to determine if they are still viable or not.

    I have received many envelopes of dust that were supposed to contain Sarracenia seeds. I have never been so fortunate to have enough intact material to get germination, but its worth watering an extra pot for a while in case you do. Steve is right.. the only way to tell for sure is plant them and see what happens.

    Good luck,

    I am sorry about that Alex. I had remembered to write hand cancel on it after I dropped them in the mailbox. I will have to remember to do that next time. I hope they germinate for you.

    Almost certainly the crushed and cracked ones will not germinate. Sometimes a few escape so look carefully.

    Best regards

    It doesn't pay to be cheap. add a little bubble warp around it and lay down the extra 13 cents that it costs to send a ovesize letter.
    My 2 cents
    Every seed that you plant ,doesn't sprout.
    Every seed that sprouts, doesn't make it to maturity.
    Every cutting that you stick doesn't grow roots.
    Every cutting that roots doesn't grow to a small plant.
    Every small plant doesn't reach maturity.

    Wasn't trying to be cheap. I have recieved them that way in the past and figured it was ok to send them that way. I will get some bubble wrapp to send seeds in next time.
