I got some seeds of Caesalpinia delphinensis and I just put them on some wet cotton but they haven't germinated. So I would like to know if the seeds need a special treatment to help them germinate.

Welcome! Valeria; I am not familiar with that particular species of Caesalpinia but generally the seeds of other plants in this family germinate very easily when kept warm and moist. Maybe you need to give it a little more time.

Here's a bit of general information. It does sound like the seeds need to be scratched slightly, then soaked for a few hours. And they prefer temperatures above 84 deg. F.
