Geissorhiza and Moraea - germination

Hi!
I have recently sown Geissorhiza radians and Moraea villosa, but so far no sign of germination. Does anyone know how long time they usually take to germinate, and do they need any kind of special treatment? Wet or just moist soil? Or sand? Temperature? Light or darkness?
At the moment they're in moist soil at a temperature of 18-22 degrees Celsius.

Should take about 4-8 weeks to germinate. Soil must be moist not wet. Keep trays in shaded cool area. No special treatment is required.

I find they germinate quite easily too, but it all depends on if they are summer ot winter growing species, they tend to start into growth at the same time as the parent plant.
