The objective of this research was to test the effectiveness of several treatments at raising germination percentages of sawgrass (Cladium jamaicense) seeds. Sawgrass seed lots from two years (1991 and 1995) were tested in two separate germination experiments that were run from 1994 to 1995 and 1995 to 1996. Treatments aimed at breaking dormancy were abrasion with sand paper, steeping in hot water, dry heating, soaking in nitric acid or sodium hypochlorite, cold, moist stratification (for a… CONTINUE READING
