I have checked the archives on "Forcing" and "Refridgeration" and "Media"
which give various references and comments about media etc, and mention of
something called Granigrit.

Given you have said that media is critical, I'm assuming there have been
more extensive discussions than what I found.  What would be your
suggestions on what other key words I'd search on?

Have others in Australia forced seedlings?  Is there a suggested product to
use as media for them in the fridge (Granigrit which was mentioned is
probably not something that is available under that name here in Australia)

I was going to ask if there was a document up until I noticed a comment in
an August message asking Craig for just such a document.

Thanks for any directions you can give me.
