Velthemia Seeds

Greetings from Snowy & Cold Boston,

I have just ordered some Velthemia seeds from the PBX 57 and I was wondering
what the preferred or best way to start them indoors.

I have some Cyrtanthus seeds from a previous order that were placed on a
very gritty peat/extra fine bark mixture and was covered with coarse sand
about 1/4" or about 3mm. Now, being the nosy impatient person that I am, of
course I had to delicately scrape the sand back to see if any of the seeds
had sprouted and to my complete delight...they did!!!

I was wondering if this technique (less the digging around) will work for
Velthemia seeds. Please let me know.

Very Warm Regards,
