Hi John! Welcome to our forum.
Germination will be more reliable if the seeds
are stratified @24°-39° for 2-4 weeks before sowing, but stratification is not absolutely required.
Maiden Grass (Miscanthus
require light for germination, so do not cover them!
Keep moist and maintain a temperature of 68°-70° until germination, which takes 2-4 weeks.
