Seeds outdoors (inna pot) with minimal protection of a cold frame or even a plank on top of the (bermed into soil) pot.
FWIW frankly I had better luck simply weeding out volunteer seedlings late in the spring. providence did for me
better than I could do myself. I replanted those volunteer seedlings to my own pots with my best result.
I find it not merely a trial of moistening a dry Japan maple seed, but one of alowing a damp seed to go through the many cycles of warming and chilling that a winter has.
My short of this is: a damp seed needs go go from the tree to pot with no
interuptions. Dried is dead
