When getting ready to plant, pre-soak in hot water for 24-48hrs. Place the seeds in moist medium like sphagnum moss or perlite in a ziploc bag and place the seeds in the medium. Close the baggie and leave in a warm spot (>70F). Alternately, you can plant the seeds in the medium in a nursery pot and place a ziploc bag over the planter.
Once the seeds germinate, you can plant the seeds in a planter. Monitor their conditions and make sure the soil remains moist.
