    I soaked B. aquatica (2009) and B. aquatica (2012) seeds in GA3 for 24 hours and 48 hours. Then, a portion of the seeds were sown on LFS and another portion were left in distilled water (since the species was observed to be growing in very wet conditions).

    The 2012 batch is showing signs of germination in water after 6 days (for both 24 hours and 48 hours soak)!!!

    I am going to observe the ones on LFS but will move them into distilled water in a few days if germination still does not occur.

    Congrats, Cindy. So - the gibberellic acid (GA3) treatment has made all the difference for the B. aquatica?

    Hi Mark, nope...the freshness mattered as I used GA3 for all the seeds. And the ones in water only germinated a day or two earlier.

    Some pics to share
    B. rorida


    B. aquatica


    B. 'Pilbara' - the seeds are smaller than other species
