    Dude you rock ! Glad to see these in capable hands. Should be some interesting pups. It will be neat to see the germination rate in vitro vs the rest of us.

    Nice to see your process as always David. Might I ask exactly what medium you are using.

    Are you using a Knudson C base? Or are you using MS. Is this one of your own mixes?

    Would you mind posting the recipe?

    I have aseptically germinated Cephalotus on several occasions over the years, along with rhizomes and leaves -- going back as far as college. On average, I have experienced a third greater rate of germination in TC media. I never bothered to photograph the process, since it was so damn wonkish and I was still hoping to land a date with the fairer sex . . .

    They are hairy little buggers to be sure; and the best solution that I have found is a several hour (six in the case of the F1s) soak in an 8% solution of PPM (to 1:3 MS salts without sucrose or pH adjustment). In the past, I have even gone to lengths of removing the seed from the follicle -- read: far too much time on one's hands and a nice Nikon dissecting scope -- and have used alcohols and bleach solutions with lesser success.

    I also germinate a few conventionally as a control . . .
