These are easy to germinate. You shouldn't have any problem. The seeds are orthodox and require no pretreatment.

I just clean mine, put them on a paper towel to dry for a day or two, plant them in moist (not wet) soil, cover to keep the soil from drying out, and keep at room temperature. I usually get near 100% germination.
