Pentas are usually propagated from cuttings, since cuttings root so easily, but you can start them from seed. Sow them in moist seed-starting medium and maintain warm temperatures (the top of your refrigerator provides great root-zone heating). Germination takes 3-4 weeks. Here's a source for pentas, but I'm not sure if they offer seeds or just plants:
