Hi all.. I was looking under the FAQ link thread by Neuro and did not see any links to info on Peruvian Torch or San Pedro cultivation from seed...


From what I hear- the germination rate is very low. Anyone know how low.. like 1 in 7 or so?

Next- how do you start the seedlings/care for them properly.. If I ever grew a cactus I want to do it all from the beginning so I can watch the process..

If anyone has some good links, tips, or info for a beginner San Pedro grower, please don't hesitate to share.

M S Smith has written what I'd consider to be the most comprehensive online guide to germinating cacti from seed. It is called 'Closet Cactus Care' and you could find it easily with a google search.

unless the seeds are old, then the germ rates go down...

Make sure the seeds are fresh stock and follow the directions. Mushmush.com has another helpful guide.

Growing from seed takes patience and many years. It takes 3-5 years to get 2-4' from seed ungrafted. But you can look into seedling grafting with  Pereskiopsis or columnar cacti like Pedro, Myrtillocactus geometrizans, and opunita (prickly pear). Grafting can increase growth rate from seed at least 2-3x.

Messagarden.com is a great source for seeds and grafting stock :wink:
