Sounds like they may be just a lil slow to germinate. I found this info online:

Leonotis leonurus R. Br.;
Mint family (Labiatae)
A shrubby, branching perennial 3 to 6 feet high with 2- to 5 inch long hairy-toothed leaves. The tubular flowers are 2 inches long, bright red, yellow, or orange-red, and bloom in late spring and autumn. Native to Africa.

Cultivation and Propagation: Leonotis may be planted outdoors in California and the South; it may be grown as an annual in the North, or brought into the greenhouse during winter. It should be planted in full sun, as it will not flower in the shade. It prefers a dry soil and is drought-resistant. Water deeply and infrequently.

Leonotis may be propagated by seeds sown indoors from January to February. Cuttings root easily at any time of the year. For good-sized plants, cuttings should be taken in the early spring.

Harvesting: The leaves and flowers are smoked for their cannabis-like effects. These parts may be gathered at any time and dried quickly. Harvest no more than one-third of the leaves at one time. Let the plant grow and fill out for at least a month before harvesting again. In Africa a resin is gathered from the leaves. Plants grown in less torrid climates do not tend to exude this resin. Such leaves can be smoked, however, or subjected to alcohol extraction.
