Loph + Trich germ setup
    #3522024 - 12/19/04 10:11 PM (11 years, 11 months ago)

I recently purchased some Trich. bridgesii and Loph. williamsii (white flower) seeds.

Just thought id share my setup with you all.

Medium: 2/3 coarse sharp sand & 1/3 cactus mix.
Light: 40w Compact fluorescent
Temp: 27~.C.



Depending on germination rates i may or may not use a fungicide.
The propagation dome isn't necessary but soon other seedlings will require it.

Looks good but I have found the more florescent lighting you have.... the better. You might want to think about more lighting.

thanks for that Aelph/Gr0wer.
In C.C.C by M.S.Smith i think he used 2x40w 2' - fluorescents

I may get another globe at some point. but for now i think i'll leave as is.
cheers.

Actually I find they need more light for best germination than they do for initial growth

rad setup do you leave the plastic lids closed or do you keep them partially open for air exchange

I keep them fully closed.
I've read mixed reports, in M.S.Smith' CCC he suggests keeping lids/bags closed throughout the germination period to avoid contams. I'll do the same.

EDIT: -> Has anyone read M.S.Smith' revision of 'Narcotic & Hallucinogenic Cacti of the New World'?. I've been thinking of getting it. Anyone care to comment on it?
