|Cassia seedlings in Situ|
These are my results so far. Each pot had in it two seeds. As you can see, that's a fifty percent strike rate.
(The little thing in the top left hand corner is a weed.)
The fifty percent strike rate held true in the in-situ experiment, as you can see.
This little experience is another example of what some people would call nature's wastefulness, producing a hundred seeds and having just thirteen sprout.
However you may recall that I didn't give all the seeds the chance to sprout. I choose the biggest after they'd been soaked.
And, anyway, in nature, every single seed is used when not to grow up and become a shrub, then to feed the myriads of small lives that live in its
local food web.
