Use a fresh seed and very carefully remove and discard the hairy covering. It should be planted on edge with the hump side up, and with from 1/4 to 1/2 of the seed exposed. Keep the soil damp and try to keep it as close to 80 degrees as possible so it will germinate better. If you don't keep it warm enough, the seed will mold. It should germinate in about a week.
