Seed size: Lobelia seeds are very small. Do not bury them (see germination instructions below).
Note: This plant species is known to have toxicity. The ingestion of these seeds or this plant can cause serious illness or death.
About pellets: Pelleting is a coating that is sometimes applied to small seeds, to help with handling and sowing. Once the seeds are sown and watered, the pelleting is designed to immediately disintegrate to release the seeds.
Germination: Place seeds on the surface of a sterile seed mix (do not bury them), and keep moist and warm until germination, which can take 3-4 weeks. Do not let the soil dry out, or it can end the germination process. Grow in a partly-shady location. A sterile seed-start mix is important with these seeds, as regular potting soil can contain eggs of fungus gnats, which can be detrimental to very small seeds. Be sure the mix is specifically formulated for starting seeds.
