Cup and Saucer Vine

This is the first time I have ever grown cup and saucer vine from seed. I bought some 'key lime' variety seeds that were on sale from parks to give them a try. I sowed them probably two or so weeks ago and they haven't germinated yet. Any suggestions or tips from your experience with them would be greatly appreciated! :)

"cobaea scandens"

"Soak the seed for 2 hours in lukewarm water before sowing. Sow at 65-75F in a good seed sowing mix. Sow the seeds on their edge and just cover with sowing mix. Keep soil damp but not wet, sealing in a plastic bag after sowing is helpful. Germination usually takes 21-30 days"

RE: Cup and Saucer Vine

I just soak them in water overnight and plant them the following day. Mine usually sprout within 10 days and I've always had just about 100% germination. I cover the pots to retain moisture and keep them somewhere warm but I don't use bottom heat. My problem is that my growing season isn't long enough and if not started very early inside I don't get flowers.
