Hope all is well.

Your logo interests me because it shows the function of the radicle. I understand that seeds in most if not all cases are raised up soon afther the radicle has completed its essential job of finding both stability and water and after which using then to strengthen the upper radicle or stem so that it can do its job of strenthening the cotyledons to produce their cotyledonary leaves, being the seed's two structural halves becoming the seed's first leaves, after which they assisit in the organism's subsequent production of two "true" leaves, being pepper, tomato, imaptiend or petunia leaves and so forth.

So I ask you why you name yourself, "Radicle", but then show a composite type logo of the seed's later stage of producing what seem to be a generic set of normal leaves. Why not show the radicle jack-knifinng the seed upwards while it does the primary work of "stage one" which is not to produce leaves, but to produce roots, thus its name.

I think it's impoortant to tell people seeds don't "grow seedlings". The first thing they do is go down intoi the earth to rise up to the sky. When I tell poeple that, they are surprised. Bit like how they're blown away when I tell people we humans are parasites. Most folks think mushrooms are like plants. But they're much more like anmials.

Just a suggestion.

Love your site.
