Hi Folks,

Re: Kathleen's question about the lack of lettuce seed germination in fruit 
juice:  It seems to me that the low pH of the juices mentioned could more than 
account for the observed inhibitory effect on germination. Although seed 
germination is very certainly sensitive to ABA, it's also often sensitive to 
pH.  Have a good weekend!
