I don't think the above extreme is necessary, at least for bearded
seeds. I live in a fairly mild climate and all I do is soak the seeds
for 3 days prior to planting in pots. I get very good germination using
this method. One factor determining germination which one should
consider is parentage. Not all crosses germinate equally and parentage
can be a factor.
