It's been 5 weeks since I indoor-sowed Monarda. The pots are on heat. Yet I have nothing showing, 0%. Do you think I've done something wrong? or have only dud seeds? Or am I suffering from insufficient patience?

I kept waiting and waiting to post this question; it would be a joke on me if they showed up next week. But any ideas?

Monarda seeds need light to germinate, so if you covered the seeds with too much soil, they will have problems to germinate.
I'm not a fan of using heat. All the Monarda's I have are winter sown.
