    Seed killing Ziplocs (another urban legend ?)

    Found this out on _bay from a seller:

    We grow our own plants and harvest our own seeds, so we KNOW what we sell! 5 generations of florists, commercial growers and seedsmen since 1861. You can count on getting QUALITY PLANTS and SEEDS from us. Our seeds are packaged only in glassine and seed envelopes....never in seed embryo killing static poly plastic bags. Haven't you ever wondered why there are no seed companies that package their seeds in little plastic Ziploc bags? Because the static electricity generated by plastic poly KILLS seed embryos.

    Huh ?

    seed in ziplocs?

    Everything I've gotten from Sandeman Seeds (France) has been in those little poly ziplocs. Lots of seeds germinated, (tho I have had a few lots with 0%).

    Static electricity...hmmmm. I have heard of farmers, esp. in Canada, treating their grain seed with magnets before sowing, getting consistent improved germination/growth. But static electricity, never heard of this one!
