In our climate, pots, not open garden.

Eastern Asiatic, so summer monsoon climate: protect from excessive 
winter wet. I don't know for sure if any species are truly winter hardy, 
but the word "montane" in descriptions suggests that Nomocharis is 
generally frost-hardy.

Peaty soil.

Do NOT disturb roots! I grew a nomocharis from seed to flowering many 
years ago, but potting it on killed it. I suspect that if you really 
want a show, sow the seeds directly into a large, deep pot filled with 
an appropriate soil mix, and keep it on the north side of the house 
where direct sun rarely reaches it but it has good strong diffuse light 
from the sky.

Don't forget to water.
