    D. rotundifolia stratification question

    So, I ordered seeds of D. rotundifolia from a nursery owned by a well known educator in Maryland, and wanted to know if they were already stratified. I assumed they weren't and they have been on the fridge for several weeks now. I would like to know if that was a good idea, and if anyone else has germinated seed from him.

    Doubt it'll be a problem one way or the other. Rotundifolia need stratification, and I did so with mine (water floated in the fridge for a few months... I completely forgot about them). My seed weren't from him, though - snagged them from the seed bank.

    I'd just plant the seed, wait a bit and see what happens. I got a good germination rate out of mine. Otherwise if you're worried you could always email him to see whether they were pre-stratified or not (I would have, as you did, assumed not).

    Even if stored in the fridge, it's best to give rotundifolia at least a 4 week stratification. I ended up with hundreds of plants...
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.
