Some knowledge about growing from seed is necessary to germinate even the easiest seeds.

require that their growing medium remains moist until germination.|
Most seeds require oxygen to germinate, if buried too deep in their growing medium, or if the medium is too wet,
the seeds may not get the oxygen they require.
Bixa orellana seeds will usually germinate in 30-180 days, even under good conditions germination may be erratic.
