Live sphagnum isn't crucial. It helps ward off fungus pretty good though. You can get just as good of results if you used dried long-fibered sphagnum. I got nearly 100% germination this year using it (except for those dang s. purpurea montana seeds - I don't think i got 'em cold enough). Anyway, if you go with the dried sphagnum, just make sure to give it a little fungicide before you stratify them. Then, like eplants02 said, put them in a warm, sunny spot and they'll be sprouting before you know it.
