   The L. auratum seeds I germinated indoors I kept in a ziplock filled with

   I put some water in the sack, shook it, and dumped out the water.
The only remaining water was the individual drops clinging to the inside of
the sack. I then put a bit of perlit in and mixed the seeds in after. I think
even humidity is more important than direct moisture contact. Nearly all
germinated and not a single seed rotted.

   What temperatures have you found
to be good or bad?
