But could you take a pin/needle & scrape/cut the outer shell a bit till you saw the seed inside

Just an idea

Good Luck

I found this info - might help .. but do nick them with the clippers - that should speed germination:

Planting Water Lily Seeds

Step 1

Fill a water tight one-gallon container 1/4 way with soil. Pack the soil down and carefully add water to the brim, trying to disturb the soil as little as possible.

Step 2

Distribute several seeds evenly across the soil. Cover the seeds with a layer of white sand to anchor them to the soil and provide a bright backdrop for examining for growth.

Step 3

Watch for growth. When the seedlings have produced several small floating leaves, carefully remove them from the container and pot them individually.

Step 4

Place the individual pots in a shallow pond in water that is deep enough to cover the pot completely. Allow these water lily plants to grow out to maturity.

Let me know how things are going .. I'm definitely interested!

I received some of the lotus seeds that were offered in the exchange/trade. I'm trying a nail file as I suspect I'll injure myself if I try my pen knife lol
