Strawberry Spinach Seeds Won't Germinate

Planted them in the basement under grow lights. It is about 65 degrees there and I planted them in moist potting soil. Anyone else have experience with this plant? I got them from SSE.

RE: Strawberry Spinach Seeds Won't Germinate

I tried growing those last year (TWICE, from two different sources, SSE and Seeds of Change), with terrible results from each - whcih was surprising, because everytime I looked them up, the information said that it was basically a weed and would grow anywhere. I tried starting them early both indoors and out, as well as a second crop direct sown in areas with different amounts of sun. Not a single plant from either package or any method. Quit now before you invest any more time or money . . .

May I ask, how small were the strawberry spinach seeds you planted?
