Cactus seeds seem to be germinating- what next!

Post by hnasir » March 9th, 2014, 6:44 pm

So I got a packet of cacti seeds as a gift from someone- i was really skeptical but somehow they've germinated. I looked up the media etc and care online and am quite happy to see some life :)

Question is: What next?! :geek:

well germination is mostly the easy part, then comes the sustenance, ensure you keep the media barely moist, not wet nor dry. Lets see what Tahir has to stay

Ammm...question...where do you source cacti seeds in Lahore? Are they expensive?

I like to grow mine from baby cacti plant-lets...where can I get reasonably priced cacti varieties (the local nurseries rarely have cacti, and even if they do they charge unreasonably high prices!)
I am a student and operate on a budget...where do i source my cacti from???
