Concern about Lophophora seedlings
    #4022061 - 04/06/05 05:12 PM (12 years, 7 months ago)

Well, they're not really seedlings yet. But I just planted them as per several tec's I've found. I'm a little concerned because the soil does not seem to dry out at all, and I haven't bottom watered yet. I wanted to wait until the soil showed ANY sign of water loss before beginning the watering, but after 4 days, nothing.

What should I do?
These seeds are worth more than gold to me so I don't want to f' it up.

Cacti Seedlings seem to like to start under the same conditions most seedlings do.. Damp ones, keeping the soil moist until a baby emerges has always worked very well for me. And even moistening them occasionally when they are still young. Remember most Cacti don't grow in actual desert conditions, they grow in semi-arid desert-like regions. And the seeds start themselves in the height of the rainy season, so I think they like high humidity, and even moisture, until they have popped out of the soil.

4 days is nothing to worry about.... at a week or two start worrying, if you haven't seen anything.
good luck00
