ahould work, but I thought cacti don't like soil with lots of nutriants as in compost...
maybe you could mix in some more sand

pasturize/sterilize it too! i had some pretty bad luck with over 100 seeds not germinating and it *may* be due to the unsterilized cactus soil i used.

thx for the replies
I will mix it with sand,then put in pots and then sterilize like mushrooms right - covering the pot with foil and let it stay in boiling water ?
Lol last time I sterilized sand I put the sand right in the stew pan and there was a horrible smell, also I should have let it dry for some time

put it in the microwave in a microwave safe container, cover it but not tightly so air vents out.. microwave 1 minute for each cup of soil and allow to cool before use.
