This trial is seeking to confirm whether heat is helpful for speed and rate of germination, more details here. 14 days or so after sowing, there’s not a fat lot going on, except that the “hot” Zephyranthes have begun to germinate and have certainly cleared the hurdle of 5 germinations, let’s call it 14 days as I don’t know exactly when they got to that point.  Certainly for this variety the basal heat has speeded things up on the germination front.

Some DO like it hot…

I’ll be back, with an update on this trial in a week or two.
