    I was given S. alata seeds in February and they began to sprout in about 3 weeks. I just had hem in a pipette dispenser container, moist, covered, and at a window sill. Nothing sophisticated.

    I coverered my purp venosa seeds with peat and they sprouted fine.

    Thats good, Starman. In nature they are not usually covered, but sometimes do get covered. I find, for me, that leaving them uncovered is best. You can see the first signs of molds or fungus if they are not covered, and deal with it. Covered seed are usually dead from fungus or mold before you even know it is there. They will germinate just the same, covered or otherwise. Take your own choice.

    You might as well. Only dead seeds tend to grow fungus.

    Hmmm. Its been way overdue it seems but I still have a couple seeds sitting around on the peat(no sprouts that I saw). Could they still be viable? Any way to try to encourage them?

    I find it depends on species, how fresh the seed is, and how long in the fridge. If nothing sprouts in 4 weeks throw it back in the fridge for another 3-4 weeks and you should get sprounts hte second time. This is especially true of fresh seed which needs the "rest"
