Juli: We (they) worked very hard for about two hours, Fernando and Sonia with very sharp knives.
I couldn´t help much because I´m blind as a bat
and kept busy taking pictures.



Fernando: After we "nicked" the seeds, we put them in plastic cups with holes in them for good water circulation around the seeds. They then went into the aquarium where the water temperature will be raised from 75F to 85F.

Juli: Bolivar was very curious and finally understood what this was all about.
