Sharon, this has been a really good tutorial on sprouting difficult seed. A few years ago, I collected seeds (bee pods) from both my Spurias and my Lousianas. Wrote to Mary Meek who told me that Lousianas take two years to germinate.
I had no success with either group of seed. This was probably due to both my inexperience and impatience.
Does your method work with either of these?

I used the paper-towel-pad-in-baggie germination method for many experiments because it is easier to monitor growth and is quite photo-friendly. While it saves a lot of space, it also takes more time than perlite in dishes because more frequent attention is needed to keep the moisture at the proper level.
In this first picture, all three seedlings are ready to plant but the one on the right is the optimum size.
These three might survive if planted, but I found that the overall survival rate was significantly lower for those planted before the first leaf broke through.
