seed viability
    #8804124 - 08/21/08 05:17 AM (10 years, 3 months ago)

Hey,

i was just wondering (as my seed collection is growing rapidly) how long cacti seeds (lophophora species, trichocereus species, ariocarpus species, etc.) stay viable, or if there is a pretty specific length of time they need to be planted within.

i keep my seeds in an airtight tin, in a pretty regular 23 (approx.) degrees room, with all the different varieties in sepereate ziplock bags.

EDIT: forgot to say thankyou :smile:

Dr :ronpaul: says to stop trying to treat the side-effects of big government and focus on the core issues. End the Federal Reserve/audit the gold reserves at Fort Knox, abolish the IRS, end all wars and occupancies, stop the building of an empire that will inevitably fail, and cut all unconstitutional federal programs. Put the power back in the peoples' hands by ending this nanny-state.

If your seeds come from a good source they should stay viable for years.
