Glossostigma seeds

Has anyone tried growing glosso from seeds? On ebay they sell these neat little jars of glosso seeds just wondering if anyone has tried this and had success.

Today... boom!

75-80 degrees
Covered in plastic with a small vented corner to evaporate excess mosture.
I also added some seed in the bare spots

I used a heating pad under the tank to warm the substrate.

Substrate: Aquasolum black Humate, black sand Florite mixture

That's great to hear! Pretty clever with the heating pad.

Thanks, i was hoping it would work cuz there was a bit to much water in the tank at first also.
It also emulates nature id guess

I had Glosso for a few months. Spreads crazy fast. I ended up removing if because it started to take over. If not trimmed properly, it will grow over itself and eventually grow upward. Otherwise, it's a vibrant green carpet plant.
Here is a pic before I removed them:
