We are growing Oak trees from acorns and I have non-floaters, the one that sank during the float test. If you will notice that the small ones are Live Oak acorns and they are quite a few of them. There are approximately 14 to be precise. We are going to plant them by their selves and we are going to plant those 4 Burr Oaks that sank and we are going to verify if we have a 100 percent germination of those since they did in fact, do what was expected of them. We are going to find out whether that makes all that difference. So I am going to take these Live Oaks and I am going to plant them around the outside as mother nature would plant them, half in the soil, half out and I am going to plant them all together here so that we can the maximum use of our time and effort when we are watering and even our potting soil because we are not spending a lot of time potting these things in individual containers that may or may not sprout. Once they sprout, then we will get them in their individual containers. That is all of the sinkers of the Live Oak.
