How To Grow Cacti From Seeds

Cacti and Succulents.jpg

Step 1:

Fill a small terra cotta pot, that has good drainage, with Cactus/Succulent soil. Ensure the medium is firmly pressed down with about 1/4 of an inch from the top. Scatter your cactus seeds over the surface of the soil within the pot.

 

Step 2:

Sprinkle a very thin layer of soil covering the surface of the sowed seeds. Give the pot a small amount of water (or you can use a spray bottle of water) to help the seeds germinate. Place the pot in a warm windowsill or cover the pot with a clear plastic bag (or zip-lock bag) to help create a greenhouse effect to allow the seeds to germinate. It may take up to 5 weeks before you see anything growing.

 

Step 3:

Remove the plastic bag and water when the medium becomes dry. You can spray the surface with water regularly to keep it moist when it becomes dry. Step 4: Use an old fork/spoon/chopstick tweezers to gently tease out and lift up each of the small cacti and move them to their own pots if required.

 

Notes:

It may take up to a year before they are ready to be moved to their own pots. Cacti are very slow growing succulents that love lots of light and well-draining soil
