A lot will depend upon the viability of the seed - It may have been
harvested before fully ripe etc. Suggest you simply scatter a few
seeds on top of the compost in a pot, and then enclose the pot in a
clear plastic bag - out of full sun> If the seed is ok, then it should
sprout within a week.
A quicker test, is to put a few grains of the seed on some damp
blotting paper on a window sil. The seed should start to swell within
2-3 days. If it doesn't then there is a problem with the viability of
the seed.

Was it dormant when you transplanted it?

Oh sorry never mind. I've never grown it from seed. I have a lot of it but
it's all from splits.
