Seeds of many native species are dormant and require specific conditions or pre-treatment for germination.
Although not always critical in breaking the seed dormancy in some species it will often reduce germination times and or increase germination rates, other species can be difficult to germinate without it.
When soaked in water the solution contains natural chemicals found in smoke that have been found to break the dormancy and stimulate germination in many Australian plants. The degree of stimulation varies by species but on average will increase the number of seedlings by at least two when compared to untreated seed.
