Succulents seeds

I ordered some succulent seed from eBay that arrived without instruction or even the name/s of the types. What's the best way to start them off?

sounds like you have got something from China??? any proper seller would give you proper instructions and tell you what you are growing. Usually, cacti or succulents needs a very free draining soil, sow onto soil surface and cover very lightly with a little grit, put into a heated propagator, mist them every few days, they are quite tricky to grow
