I agree, 90°F does sound a bit warm. I've started these by floating the seeds on water at room temperature. Every few days the water can be changed if it becomes at all murky, and the seeds can be washed gently if mold develops. When you observe a root radicle starting, individual seeds can be placed in potting medium to grow.

 sounds very warm! I find them
 easy to germinate in cooler conditions.
