Can not find the above answer on your web site. Should delphiniums be planted in the the dark if I am trying to plant/germinate seeds in the House ?

Place the delphinium seeds on the surface of the compost, spacing them one inch apart. Cover them with a 1/4-inch-thick layer of seed-starting compost. Mist it with water and gently firm the surface.

Place the seed tray outdoors in a sheltered, lightly shaded garden area where temperatures stay between 65 and 75 degrees Fahrenheit during the day. Provide warmth with a propagation mat if the weather is unusually cool.

Maintain a light level of constant moisture in the top 1 inch of compost while the delphinium seeds germinate. Let the surface dry slightly between waterings to keep the seeds from rotting.
