Cape Super Smoke Plus is supplied as an absorbent paper that is impregnated with chemical components present in bushfire smoke plus other natural germination stimulators. To release these chemicals, water is simply added to the paper and the seeds are “smoked” by soaking them in this solution. This pretreatment stimulates seed germination by overcoming seed dormancy.
