I find the most difficult thing about keeping these seedlings alive isn't
the sowing but their first dormancy. These seeds are dust-like and I only
sprinkle them on top of the soil. They sprout and grew tiny little leaves
the first year but I find that the medium particles I use are way too large
and obscure sunlight for these little plants. In the wild perhaps they grow
in a very fine gritty substrate. I had a pot that sprouted nicely but
nothing comes up the second year.
