Hi Sue,

I germinated many types of seeds including many aroids by placing the seeds
in a plastic zip-lock type bag with coarse, just barely moist sphagnum
moss.  This way, I can keep an eye of the germination process.

Regards further cultural info, I'll defer to others, except to say that
titanum seedlings do not seem to like any weather cooler than 60F.

Good Luck  (PS - how is the Anthurium halmoorei doing?)
