Bakpullver it can get seeds to germinate faster?

If you want to get the chili seed to germinate more quickly or if they find it difficult to germinate so there are many different tricks to get the seed.

Usually Bakpullver seems to work fine. It dissolves the waxy membrane that the seed has to germinate the seed faster. If there are any other stimmulerande effect on the seed so that it grows it I do not know but in my attempts to have the seeds I dealt with germinated faster than the ones I have not dealt with.

I mix a spice measure baking powder with 1/2 DL. tepid water and put in the seed then stir me about everything and let the seed lie in the mixture for about 24 hours.

Baking powder consists of baking soda (sodium hydrogen carbonate, Nahco ¬ 3), natriumdivätefosfat (NaH2PO4) and starch. Bicarbonate is alkaline, and reacts with divätefosfat, that is acidic, during the formation of the gas carbon dioxide and a salt (Na2hpo4)

      Hi! Glad it worked. sometimes you do not need to buy special products which are already in the pantry 🙂

    “carbon dioxide gas is formed”

    So, If you're going to be a little scientific would thus get better speed on the plants if it had an container with this mixed in minidrivhuset so the gas is formed and spread? 🙂

      Hi!
      Well all the plants like carbon dioxide. The plant converts sunlight, carbon dioxide and water into glucose and oxygen. But we need the right amount of carbon dioxide that they should give effect 🙂

    This I must try bums, even if it really is too late as chilli. If seeds of some really tough grades that I “sacrificing”, any plants to the winter over and provide a harvest next year 😉

    Baking soda is grease and I usually use it or bicarbonate when it will stop in the kitchen drain.
