Today I plant cacti
    #1442219 - 04/09/03 10:13 AM (14 years, 7 months ago)

1/3 vermiculite + 2/3 sand. The biggest rocks and biggest parts of vermiculite in the bottom, the finer sand & verm. on top. I now sterilize it like I sterilize jars - before planting the seeds.What you think

i don't know what type of cacti you're planting, and i'm no professional, but i'm pretty sure they need some type of regular potting soil mixed in with the sand...

They will need some source of food before they are big enough transplant. I would recommend replacing the vermiculite with soil and pinch of perlite (if you have some). Vermiculite helps hold water and you want a soil which drains well and holds little water. Perlite works well to help with drainage at the bottom of your pots or trays.

Good luck again  :laugh:
