Swertia seeds germinated in 11 to 12 days on vermiculite which was soaked with about 330 ppm GA3. This was at 20 ºC or 70 ºF.
I do not know which species this is. They are related to Gentians.

Can't wait to see what the mature plant looks like!
Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from the experience of others, are also remarkable for their apparent disinclination to do so.
