Ammi majus is Queen Anne's lace. The seeds will usually germinate in 7-21 days if sown on the top of prepared seed starting mix and just barely covered with additional seed starting mix. You won't need artificial light; natural light will be just fine for germinating; supplemental light should be used after the seeds have sprouted.

Orlaya grandiflora: Sow seed on the surface of lightly firmed, moist seed compost in pots or trays and cover with a very light sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Seal container inside a polythene bag and keep at a temperature of between 15-20C (59-68F). After sowing, do not exclude light as this helps germination. Keep the surface of the compost moist but not waterlogged; germination usually takes 21 to 30 days.

Best wishes with your seed starting!
