Planting Cactus Seeds

There are two ways of growing cactus; from seeds or cuttings. For cactus enthusiasts, growing cactus from seeds is rewarding though it requires patience! Growing cacti from seeds is not as hard as you might think. One of the most common mistakes people make is planting the seeds too deeply. You should only plant a seed as deep in the soil as the seed is wide

Below are a few steps to help you get started on your little indoor cacti garden!

Get some cactus seeds, these can be found at Flymeawaycreations.com or at your local garden shop.

Fill a garden container pot with high-drainage soil.

Water it well, then let the water drain.

Spread the seeds on top, then cover them with a thin layer of soil.

Place it in a sunny location, then wait for the seeds to grow.

After planting your fun seeds, you might have a few questions about what to do next:

How often should I water cactus seeds?

While growing, cacti and succulents should be watered at least once a week. Some people water more often than this. During each watering, give the soil a good soaking, so that water runs out of the ‘drainage holes’ of the pots.

How Long Does A Seed Take to Germinate?

The seed germination time depends mostly on the species and where you are growing your cactus. When you choose to grow your cactus indoors, they are more likely to germinate fast. Indoors are a more controlled environment, and seed germination can take between three months.

How much sunlight?

After soil moistening and covering the seeds with sand, you need to cover them in a transparent lid or plastic wrap. Place your seeds in a strategic location, preferably indoors, where they have access to the right amount of sun. Consider placing them on a sunny windowsill.Do not place them outside because they don’t like intense sunlight. The purpose of the transparent lid retains moisture and helps the cacti sprout as well as allowing light to reach the plant. Monitor your seedlings carefully. If they start turning purple or becoming red, the chances are that they are getting sunburned. Reduce the amount of light access.
