A note on seed germination in ipecac (Cephaelis ipecacuanha)



A note on seed germination in ipecac (Cephaelis ipecacuanha)



South Indian Horticulture 36(4): 212-213



Seeds sown in nursery beds and watered regularly failed to germinate even after 6 months, and a study was initiated to test the effect on germination of 2 treatments, viz. soaking seeds for 24 h in (1) water or in (2) 200 p.p.m. potassium dihydrogen phosphate. The results were assessed 2 weeks after sowing. Germination in (1), (2) and the non-treated control was 11, 95 and zero %, respectively.
