I would plant the seeds right away.  I received some H. eucharidifolia seeds last year.  I "planted" them (in early July 2006) on some sphagnum moss in a clear, covered plastic container under artificial light.  In a couple of months, most of the seeds started producing roots and small bulbs.  I transfered the the seeds to a pot, burying the root and bulb, but leaving the green seed on the surface.  In a few weeks they produced a narrow leaf, which grew, then gradually withered away over the winter.  This year, in late spring, they started producing broad "eucharidifolia" leaves.  I'm getting ready to transfer them to a larger pot.
I should add that I am growing them indoors under fluorescent lights.  Once I transplant them, I'm going to move the pot outdoors.
