    No. Gibberellic acid is a plant hormon. Not the acid group is used to break up dormancy but the hormon interacts with other chemical substances in a more complex way.

    But you do not need Gibberellic acid to break the dormancy of Drosophyllum seeds. I always had good germination rates without any special treatment. To assure good germination you could soak the seeds in water for some days before sowing them.

    I lightly sanded the seed coat with sand paper.

    What the above two folks said. I always had germination in less than 10 days with Drosophyllum lusitanicum. I chip off the "pointy" end which exposes the endosperm, and sow it on the surface of an appropriate substrate.
