I recently posted something on my blog about using smoke/fire to 
germinate seeds from Australia, if anyone is interested:

I have posted before on germinating seeds in damp vermiculite in plastic 
bags.  It can be seen by clicking on the topic 'Seeds' on the right hand 
side.  I use this method for any seeds that need cold stratification, 
and also some that don't need cold temperatures to germinate.  Seeds 
from South Africa usually don't do well with this method, and need a 
diurnal swing of at least 10-15 degrees F to germinate.

My latest triumph??  I have some tiny seedlings of Leontochir ovallei.  
I am thrilled.
