Seed soak and pregermination

The first results are in. I soaked seed in water to pre-germinate it for intervals of 24, 48, 72, and 96 hours. Water was poured off and new water added at 24 hour intervals. Then the seed was dried for 24 hours. Starting inside at 68 degrees, I planted grass seed (Pennington Smart Seed, mainly perennial rye) in small containers in topsoil. I began on March 20, 2014.

On March 25th the seed which had been soaked for 96 hours germinated first, on day 5. It reached about a quarter inch tall.

Not so different from my 2012 results.

Photos soon.
