Sat in on a conference session titled "fluid drilled seed"; the guy started off with a bit

about all this being nothing new and posted a pic of his infant daughter as a result of

the process. It was all down hill from their, he had tons of data on the viscosity of liquid

carrier for accurate placement of small seed.

I came away with an idea and for a time did a lot of petunia seeding in plain Jello;

and then pelleted seed and commercial plugs came along and I quit messing 

with small seed.         

For doing sprouted seed I would suggest getting them seeded at about the time 

the first signs of sprouting occur.  Clear squeeze bottles from a kitchen/restaurant 

supply shop work well.

  Note that I haven't actually done this, since my days with wallpaper paste in England. I'd love to hear from people who try it.
