Rhipsalis Seeds

Hi again (I love this forum)! I have a question about seeds. I planted 3 cuttings of a broad leaf ( kind of) curly rhipsalis in a large hanging pot. I also bought about 30 seeds. I could hardly see them and did not bury them very deep. Kind of just sprinkled them around. This was over a month ago and I've yet to see a plant strand. How long does it take? What did I do wrong? I'm not even sure what kind of rhipsalis they are. Thought it wouldn't matter if they all shared a large pot. Help!

Sprinkle them on top of the ground (good damp soil), then put it into a baggie. Keep out of direct sun, keep them warm. Do a search for "the baggie method". Works wonderful for epiphytes.
