viability VIII(a)

finally found a moment to test the seed the coach gave back to me ( top photo ) for viability...if memory serves me correctly this is seed i acquired from the usda in florida in 2010 and if that is correct there is some question of what will come of this...still...nothing ventured..so i picked out eight seeds ( second photo ) fairly randomly except that i included a couple of light colored ones in the mix just to see what might happen...i dropped them into some hydrogen peroxide ( and discovered a small cut on a finger while fishing them out ) for a twenty minute soak...one light colored seed floated the whole time ( third photo ) which means nothing in all likelihood but it's still something i noticed...after the requisite time i put them into the standard paper towel and baggie...now we wait.
