Yes I've gotten this impression too, tho I have to agree w/ Lon that usually the moldy ones which rot away completely are those which were non-viable even before stratification was started. The hard-seed species are 'the exception to the rule'.

I think the most important lesson from my latest pear seed germination batch is to NOT forget about it in the refrig! We should remember to check occasionally!

When I'm trying to get seed to grow with a really hard seed coat, it often ends up moldy. I convinced myself a while ago that that's how it should be. The Baptisia hard seeds only seem to germinate after molding.

I have to wonder if the mold/rot broke down any germination inhibitors? That seems to be the
one thing which worked FOR me.
