Just wondering, Rand, what you mean by "sphagnum moss."  Some people use =that to mean sphagnum peat.  It can also mean the live stuff, or dried =sphagnum that has been rehydrated.

Here is a real no-brainer that works: You can also take a bit of _moist_
(not wet) sphagnum moss, stuff it in the bag with the seeds and put it =in
the crisper until the seeds show signs of germination. As soon as the
radicle shows, pot 'em up and away you go. I soak the seeds overnight =and
dust them with sulphur before I do this and don't get mold. I believe =that
the sphagnum helps, also.

Kind Regards,
