you just mixed in sand with miracle grow and perlite sounds cool if it works. I'm gonna start some pedros and some other ornamental fruitng cactus like blue myrtle and prickly pear and was thinking I would need to buy cactus mix, but I already got tons of potting soil.

better soil = better

but mixing the right stuff into shit soil makes it good soil :lol:

just try to pick out the big sticks and/or anything that might mold or rot. you dont want those little seedlings getting attacked.

soil + cacti germinating conditions = bad news.  the high humidity causes mold, like you mentioned...best to avoid anything like it.  if you MUST use a soil type substrate, try coco.

i would venture as far as to say it would almost be better to get some dirt from the earth. bake it. add some sand. some gravel. some perlite (maybe a lil vermiculite, i do) and then you got yourself a decent cacti medium.

ive never done this, bcuz the nursery near me carries good cactus soil.

i forgot to mention that the whole mix was soaked in a dilute fungicide solution for about and hour, then drained and allowed to dry before being used.

i just planted a couple hundred more seeds, i will update soon.

even if old I just tried planting some san pedro seeds still haven't sprouted been at least 3 weeks planted in schultz cacti soil with a littl sand added on top with plastic wrap over the top never let it dry out. That's why I'm thinking of trying some GA I might get some anyway for my kanna seeds.

may be a bit cold.

how deep are they covered?

saturating the medium, then adding seeds, then adding a grain or sands worth of depth on top, then mist, then humidify...

shouldnt have any problems.

Do you have them in separate containers? What kind of containers did you use?
