Bottom heat!

How do you all apply bottom heat when planting cactus seed?  Also what kind and size pots do you use? :confused:

I use a heated propagator available from a garden centre / home & Gardened department store.

Maybe you can go really ghetto... A light bulb in a shoe box? Thats what I will try this spring. I will experiment with box seizes and with the watts. If you do, be sure to take the temp on the soil before putting the seeds in.

Instead of pots I usually use a small tupperware container with holes drilled in the bottom(for drainage)..Making small rows with the seed
.. As for the bottom heat.....pick up one of those "mini greenhouse"s for seed starting (theyre really cheap, about a buck, and made from really thin plastic) and also get a quality heating pad........this works just fine for me..... Or spend the extra buck and get a setup made for what your trying to do and get what SalviaEngland was talking about.......

That thing is nice for 15 bucks! I just went to the garden center and I found one of those cheapo platic seed trays with a clear plastic lid and a heating pad on top of another chapo plastic tray, and it cost 50 bucks!!!!!! I have brand new heating pad and a plastic seed tray that is about 2 and a half inches deep. I think i'll try that. My question is, how hot is too hot?

" Best germination is at about 80 to 85 degrees, but a night temperature around 65 to 70 degrees is also necessary" http://www.cactus-mall.com/ccc/index.html
