Here is the method I used to germinate my seeds:
I place seeds in a shot glass with room temperature tap water, cover with a piece paper and leave in dark overnight (10-15 hours).
I saturate peat pots with water and then create a circular depression in the center of each pot. Place each seed in center of depression with the pointed tip down. Cover the soil over the seed no more than 1/8-1/4-inch deep,
Leave seeds in darkness for 8 hours then switch on lights to 18/6 veg cycle.
I had 100% germination. All seeds started erupting from the soil within 2 days.
