When and how to start Lampranthus seeds please.

Never grown them myself but found this

"Seeds ................ sprout quickly in well-drained pots of sandy soil placed in a light location kept above 55 degrees."


Taken from here http://www.botany.com/lampranthus.html 

Hope that's helpful

Never done seeds so sorry about that but many do,amd say they are easy. However, they strike extremely quickly from cuttings.  They are grown everywhere here. we still call them "mesems".....Mesembryanthemums.  When the sun shines they are out in their full glory
