The most likely germination method is to soak the seeds in water overnight, then plant in seed-starting soil and keep the soil moist, but not soggy, for several weeks until they germinate. As they grow, transplant to a larger pot with a citrus potting soil mix as described here:

Etrog plants can then be cared for similarly to other citrus. See these articles in our citrus section:
