Growing Salpiglossis (Painted Tongue) From Seed

Ft Lauderdale, FL(Zone 10a)

I'd like to try growing Salpiglossis from seed. There's all kinds of conflicting information online regarding how to start the seeds. Some sites state to cover the seed. Some websites state to surface sew. There are other links stating to surface sew and then grow them in darkness until they germinate. Has anyone grown them from seed and what method did you use to get the seeds to germinate? Any help would be much appreciated.
