i guess now i can answer my own question. i received seeds from two sources, smartseedstore.com and sunshine seeds in germany. the seeds look very much like peppercorns. i soaked them for over 24 hours in warm water and planted some outside and some in peat pellets inside. the first seedling appeared in a peat pellet 6 days after planting. the peat pellets were looking very wet, so 4 days after planting, i took the plastic lid off the peat pellet tray that allowed them some natural light and soft sunshine and also some good air circulation. i notice there is another seedling coming up in the prepared container that has been exposed to the elements outside.
