I have grown many species of Agave from seed and generally they need light
to germinate so I don't cover them. Perhaps your seeds were in the dark and
did not germinate. Also I have found that a broad swing in temperature
between night and day is sometimes needed.
You may want to ask the folks at who are my go to place for
these kind of things. I know that bulliana is not a typical Agave, but
maybe this will help.
