    Water germination for VFT

    I am trying out the water germination method suggested here.

    The seeds were sown on 2nd july and I found two seeds with roots today!

    Here is what the VFT seeds look like befor I sowed them.

    I tried the water germination over regular germination and those that were on regular soil germinated at the same time and I did not have to move any seeds.

    She has a link to what it is in her post...It's when you germinate seeds in pure water, and not in soil.

    I am just trying it for fun since I have fresh seeds. Personally, I can't say what advantage it has over traditional sowing because previous seeds I've sowed on media didn't germinate even after stratification.
