I'm interested that Rodger of Canada soaks all seeds for up to 2 weeks. I soak most seeds in warm water with a drop of detergent at least for 24 hours and for hard coated seeds for up to 48 hours with at least a daily change of water before sowing. I do not soak seeds of Amorphophallus, Crinum, Scadoxus, Haemanthus & other fleshy Amaryllis seeds. But what determines your length of soaking Rodger? Do you soak until they begin to sprout? I'd be afraid they'd rot in the meantime. Geoff in sub-tropical NSW, AU where Summer is late in coming this year.
