For best results, use a cactus soil mix. Buy one or make your own.
Moisten the soil thoroughly.
Sprinkle 6 to 10 seeds on the soil surface. Sprinkle a fine layer of soil or sand on top. Expose growing area to strong indirect light. Real sunlight is most beneficial for seeds, but you can use fluorescent or grow bulbs to sprout them as well.
Seal growing area with glass or plastic, leaving plenty of room over the seeds for ventilation. If possible, maintain a soil temperature of 70-85ºF. Bottom heat is very effective. Good moisture, good drainage, very bright light, heat and aeration are important factors for high germination rates.
Germination will take anywhere between a week to 4 months. Do not give up on your seeds unless you notice fungus. Keeping your soil consistently moist will ensure eventual success.
When seedlings sprout, spray them with a light mist. Don’t let them dry out. Continue protecting them from direct sun light.
For the first few weeks of growth, moisten the soil every 3-4 days. Once the plants are established, water every 3-4 weeks.
