Starting hardy hibiscus seeds?

Posted by tracydr 9b (My Page) on

Just bought Luna Red and Luna Pink seeds online. Instructions say to nick the seeds. I'm assuming this means with a nail clipper?
Should I direct sow or can I start in a pot?
Also, I'm in AZ. Can these be planted in fairly strong sun or should I give them some filtered sun, like I do my tropical hibiscus?

I have never bothered to nick the seeds, just soak them for a couple of days in a shot glass near the kitchen sink so you don't forget them, and they will soon break their cotalydens, then plant them.
