The Dioscorea bulbifera, Andrographis paniculata, Hymenodictyon obovatum showed considerable positive effects on germination of some treated seeds, Simillarly Riccinus communis showed positive results in seeds of Groundnut and Jowar. The seed abnormalities were also observed. Hygorphilla schulli and Tacca leontopetaloides showed less stimulating for some seeds.
