About Roridula seeds (R. dentata and R. gorgonias; I've never heard about R.
grandiflora), I've read that they should be sown on damp soil and that the
right period for sowing is autumn.

I've tried to sow R. dentata on damp peat and to treat some of the seed with
gibberellic acid but I've never had any positive result.

Maybe they require a long time to germinate: I'm still hoping.

Hope this could be of some help.
