Germination: These plants should be fairly easy to germinate! Your planting container should have holes in the bottom for excess water to drain. Place the seeds on the surface of your growing medium, and flatten the surface. Keep moist until germination. Once seedlings emerge, place the pot in a sunny place, or under bright grow lights. Plant outdoors when large enough to handle, or when they outgrow their pot.
