    Germination and root of Ipomoea.

Transcription

Sir,

Ipomœa leptophylla makes a root as big as a man. So does Ipomœa pandurata,—which, I believe—but dont know—germinates normally, That must be looked to. If it has the same trick it would well confirm your notion of the meaning of the thing.

A Gray
