[APD] Re:Ottelia alismoides seed

I havn't had O. alismoides myself, but Muhlberg (complete Guide to Water Plants) says, "The fruit is ripe after approximately 14 days and---like all water berries---quickly disintegrates. To avoid losing the seeds the fruit should be cut off in good time and stored in a small vessel or tied up in a cloth bag. germination results are very uncertain regardless of whether the seeds are stored dry or moist. A reliable procedure is not yet available".

Kasselmann just says that "breeding in a separate container is not difficult and very productive , but also time-consuming".
