When I winter sow, I plant up the pots inside, water from the bottom, and then they drain uncovered for a day (or two if I don't get to the them) still inside.  Then I enclose the pots in a clear plastic bag and put them out side.  If temps are below zero F, I might put them in the garage for a few days first, before putting the outside.

Lori and Rick - Thanks so much for the info re sowing Syneilesis outside.  Interesting to note that S. is a member of the Asteraceae family while Podophyllum is Berberidaceae.

I have some seeds of S. aconitifolia to give away.  Let me know if you're interested.

Thanks, Lori. I didn't recall the name from Gardens North, but then, there is a lot to know on that list!

These plants are really showy upon leaf emergence.  Here are two views taken the same morning recently, one before the sun was fully up, the second taken in morning sunshine, thus a different look.  Syneilesis aconitifolia:

That's the cute stage... too bad they don't stay like that longer. ;)

Mine are jumping out of the ground; a photo from a few days ago:
