Toss the seeds over the medium, or plant in place, one seed at a time?

I just toss the seeds on the medium and then toss soil on top about a fingernail deep. Most palm seeds prefer being planted in bunches rather then single cells. Germination rates seem to be much higher this way.Thumb of 2013-03-22/eriktampabay/b830d4

Well, you sow a lot of seeds so it would take forever if you didn't broadcast Sticking tongue out

That's how I do it when I have a large amount of seeds to plant. I'm not very patient for putting seed, by seed, by seed. Hilarious!

Hilarious! And yet I have the patience to pot up single lobelia seedlings instead of "clump" transplanting. I think a lot of it is because I don't see so good anymore. That's one reason I got the magnifier headband! Hilarious!
