This variety requires cold stratification to mimic the winters the seeds go through in nature. Plant the seeds in a cold, damp environment, such as a moist paper towel you keep in a ziploc bag, moist sphagnum moss in a ziploc bag, or in a moist mix of peat moss, sphagnum moss and perlite in a planter with a lid. Live sphagnum moss is ideal- it should be moist but not soggy. Place that in a refrigerator for 4 weeks and make sure the medium remains moist.
You can soak the seeds for 24 hrs before stratifying them to rehydrate them.
To plant the seeds, sow them shallowly in a mix of peat moss, finely chopped sphagnum moss(you can use a food processor to chop it up). The seeds can be quite close together, it’s always recommended you plant the seeds in more than one planter. Put plastic bags over the planters or if growing via a seed tray, cover with the dome. Put under grow lights and on a heat mat, around 70F-80F. They should germinate within a month.
After they sprout, start acclimating to fresh air for short intervals of time. Once they have their fist couple of real leaves, remove the covering completely.
