Azolla spores

To maybe in the future eat azolla we try to breed the tannine out. Thee for we have to make the azolla reproduce from spores. 

In this tiny hatchery we have put spores from the azolla on the roof.

From left to right we have 4 compartments that contain respectively:

  1. azolla spore capsules that have not been in the blender
  2. azolla spore capsules that have been in the blender 1 second
  3. 2 seconds
  4. 4 seconds

The blender damages the spore capsules to let the spores out and meet other spores.
