Help with Cyclamen seeds

Dear All,

Some of the Cyclamen seeds I sowed from my latest NARGS seeds have formed 
the little bulbs and are trying to send up a shoot, but cannot break 
through the hard seed coat even though I soaked them a day before planting 
them. I've been dabbing water on them, but am afraid to damage the shoot by 
helping it along as I sometimes do with seed coats that are partially off. 
Does anyone have any suggestions? I haven't ever seen this discussed, but 
it must happen to others who sow a lot of seed. I know it has happened to 
me with a number of different things (but not usually bulb seed.)

Thanks in advance.

Mary Sue
