germinating African seeds

I am having trouble germinating the seeds from two African plants,
Leonotis leonurus and Leonurus Sibiricus. (Got them from From The Jungle
seed distributors.)

I tried my normal technique of putting the seeds on top of layers of
damp paper toweling inside small jars. So far, only one seed of either
batch has germinated.

Do African plant seeds need special abuse before they will germinate?
Soaking? Crushing?

Thanks for any help or suggestions.
