Growing Daubenya from seed

Hi Bruce, 

Daubenya aurea was quite easy for me. Nearly 100% of the seeds germinated after few month 
when the temperature dropped to about 10C and below.
Soil I used: approximately 1 part coarse sand, 1 part perlite, 1 part peat.
Pot: 15 cm (enough for 100 seeds) No tray under the pot for the best draining.
Soaked the seeds in cold water for 24 hours. I sow them 12mm below the surface.
During the cold season I kept the soil constantly damp, watered about once a week. (high humidity, 10C)
