Seeds of eighteen species of medicinal plants were germinated, during June 5 to July 5, 1995 in germinating media composes of 1 part of cocopeat and 1 part of sand by volume. Only the seeds of Abrus precatorius L. and Afzelia xylocarpa Roxb. were scarified by clipping before sowing. All seeds were sown directly without soaking in water. The species that gave 100 percent germination in 30 days included Zollingeria dongnaiensis Pierre and Sterculia foetida L. The species that gave 60-90 percent germination were Buchanania siamensis Miq., Amorphophallus campanulatus Bl.ex Decne., Wrightia tomentosa Roem. & Schult. Abrus precatorius L. and Arfuellia arborescens Pierre. Forty to fifty-five percentages of germination were obtained from Acacia catehu (L.f.) Willd., Lophopetalum wallichii Kurz, Basella alba L., Oroxylum indicum (L.) Vent, Telosma minor Croib, Feroniella lucida Swing and Cassia surattensis Burm.f. Seeds of Afzelia xylocarpa Roxb. and Strychnos krabiensis A.W. Hill were all decayed. Information on number of seed per 100 grams, number of days and germination percentage at first observation and color illustrations of seeds, seedlings and plant habit were also provided.
