Effects of treatment time and concentration of NaOCl on swelling formation and germination B. striata seed after 4 weeks of culture on SGM medium. Data are presented as mean ± SD. The ‘*’ mark indicates significant differences between treatments as determined by swelling formation and seed germination (p < 0.05)
