Cacti from seed
    #114285 - 08/25/08 06:40 PM (8 years, 3 months ago)

I just started my first cacti from seed, several different species.  I made my own cactus mix, around 1/3 MG potting mix, 1/3 sand, and 1/3 perlite.  I also threw in a little fish tank gravel.  The soil has a thin layer of sand on top to allow excess moisture to drain away from the cactus flesh and prevent rot.  So far so good, I have had germination for 6/7 species within a week.

I will get pics up of all of them soon, but here are some Astrophytum asteria



and five days later:

great stuff man!

one thing i notice with astro seeds is that once they sprout, if there is little air ventilation, the left over seed coats invite mold problems. just a heads up if this fits your growing environment :smile:

thanks for the tip!  i removed all the seed coats that had popped off after taking these next pics.  Most of these I got from winning uarewotueat's contest, a couple i got from trades, and i have some more on the way, including some lophs :awesome:

Astrophytum asterias



LC001 (T. peruvianus x T .bridgesii?  could be the other way around)



LC002 (opposite of LC001, T .bridgesii x T. peruvianus)



Lithops meyeri



a lone T. huasca, same as grandifloras?  trying to figure this out...



and a couple T. peruvianus



i also have some T. camarguensis that haven't showed signs of popping yet,  fingers are crossed.

    #117315 - 09/02/08 08:15 PM (8 years, 3 months ago)

probably, for fun.  i have some pereskiopsis that is finally starting to grow after i received it in the mail.

the LC001 started to put out some spines yesterday





and i think the first of my lophs popped today.

what should i do in terms of watering/feeding these seedlings?  i assume i should keep the sand somewhat moist at all times?  i'm just wondering because the A. asterias seems to have stopped growing and i'm clueless from here on out

lophs popped up next to some lithops



a couple Icaro's peruvianus



a couple bridgesii x pachanoi



some T. bridgesii



and the whole show




all of the stuff that popped earlier on has not really grown much in the last week.  should i be worried that i'm keeping them too wet or something?  or do they just grow really slow from here on out?

don't look at them for a week and you may notice some difference :lol:

you shouldn't need to give any water for a while considering the growing medium was saturated before you planted...
if the surface starts to dry out just mist them like JM said :yesnod:

lophs are getting bigger too

you know what i did in english class? I came to class stoned out of my mind every day, i chugged vodka in the back of class, i put dead fish in the ceiling tiles. i put a gallon of old milk and orange juice in the file cabinet before winter vacation. i brought snakes in a tied up sweater and let them loose during class. i didnt go to school to learn, i went because i had to. i didnt care, and i didn't fucking listen to that stupid bitch. and i still don't fucking care. i tore the pages out of her books and burned them, and threw away all the books in the class, two books per day.  :twobooks:
