African iris seed starting

Lincoln, NH(Zone 4a)

I received some African iris seeds. Do I just pant them indoors as they are or do they need soaking and stratification
like bearded iris?

Pretoria, South Africa

No soaking and stratification needed.

Cocoa Beach, FL(Zone 10a)

Are they the white or yellow?

Thank you Elsa123. I'll just plant them. Do they need light to germinate?

Pretoria, South Africa

I just covered mine, but don't worry too much, even the ones that got washed open when I watered, germinated. They are not finicky at all.

Good luck

Today I checked and I have 6 small seedlings poking out their heads. I took 4 weeks
for them to sprout. Exciting

3 more seedlings sprouted this week.
