Q.Help me to germinate a Norfolk Island Pine seed!

Zone Eastern Pennsylvania | maroth added on April 24, 2014 | Answered

Obtained 26 seeds from eBay. Good quality seeds. Planted some in moistened potting soil, some in vermiculite, and the rest in a 50/50 mix of potting soil and vermiculite. I keep them covered, mist the surface lightly every day, 70 plus degree environment, good natural light location. 16 days have gone by and there are no sprouting signs yet. Can you give me some additional advice and encouragement? Any good reference books?
