I used a mix of spangham peat moss and perlite for the Chestnuts and poked holes in the ziplock bag. They need to be damp and the perlite helps get air to them without growing mold. I had over 90% of them sprout so far.

I've got the same thing going for the sawtooth acorns but I just put them in the fridge a few weeks ago. We will see if it works for them too.
