Yes, actually I do have some more seeds from the one that still hasn't
germinated and Dave has given me quite a bit of background information on
the plant in question in nature. I'll try a few different approaches.

B.T.W., do you remember my asking you about CO2 enrichment of some of my
seedflats? Bad news! It didn't work - in the worst possible way. The flats
went skunky and I lost nearly all of the Vallisneria nana seedlings.
Sometimes I am so dumb - I should have realized that a low KH/pH, high peat
substrate could cause problems when CO2 was introduced. Like soaking the
seedlings in vinegar!
