PlantLinks to other web pages about Aconitum anthora
- Seed from Jelitto ('Gold Nugget', treated for rapid germination) '09 order. Baggy 70F (100%G, 7-14d)
- Same seed as above. Baggy 70F (no G, 24d)
The Gold Nugget thing really works - I can't ever get aconitum seed to germinate otherwise, even with the recommended stratification procedures. However, the treatment does not appear to extend the seed's viability.
