If not, ask the team of scientists whose been working on Dr. Beal’s Seed Experiment for almost a century and a half.

Every 20 years, the experiment wardens dig out seeds that were put in bottles underground 142 years ago, at a secret location on MSU’s campus.

The idea to figure out if dormant seeds can still germinate after long periods of time.
