Yes, a San Pedro question
    #3133575 - 09/14/04 11:07 AM (12 years, 2 months ago)

I'm thinking about starting a San Pedro from seed and would like to begin soon, but the cold season is fast approaching. From my preliminary reading, the seedlings will be kept indoors for a period of time, then they are supposed to go outside for ideal health, but if I start my seedlings now, by the time they'll want to go outside there will be snow on the ground. Is it advisible to keep them indoors until spring?

Is indoor growing a bad idea? I've read that indoor cacti end up tall and skinny and less potent, though I probably will not be shooting for potency. I would like to grow a few before I worry about that sort of thing. I just don't want unhealthy cacti.

You'll have to keep them out of the full sun for the first year, so raising seedlings indoors is a very good idea.

maybe you could just get a small compact flourescent to give them a little bit more intense light.  you could also try keeping the light close to the cacti to stop it from stretching.  i'm going to experiment with san pedros indoors this winter :laugh:

Prohibition will work great injury to the cause of temperance. It is a species of intemperance within itself, for it goes beyond the bounds of reason in that it attempts to control a man's appetite by legislation, and makes a crime out of things that are not crimes.

well a friend of mine said to get metal halide lighting, and i also read something on the net about it being ideal as it offers uv light as well as heat, bugt ive yet to look into it.

i am im western new york and the warm season is a little breif, so is inddors for like, 6 months at a time a neglegable choic'e? i've heard that san pedros are hearty, but what is the norm for their dormant period? also, if it is possible to grow them completely indoors, is a dormant period necessary? some material ive read, the nook archives, talks about a period of heavy feed in the begining of summer... would i have to mock seasons in my grow room?

thatnks in advance, and sorry for the stupid qustions. i'm still in the educational/decision phase of this project.

Flourescents work great for the first year of cacti growth. Even Metal Halides are too intense unless they are several feet away. After maybe 6-9 months you can start introducing some early morning or evening sun.
