cacti from seeds - how long?
    #970546 - 10/17/02 10:29 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)

hi everybody! well i started some cacti from seeds in trays and always planted at least two different species by tray. some have had great germination rate and are growing fast, some had low germ rate and some have never grown at all... what's the longest time one can wait for seeds to germ? (t. peru/bridgesii, in this case)... ??? thanks in advance...

are you using bottom heating?

If not, then it could be a couple months before all the seeds that will germinate to do so. I've heard of some peruvians taking only a couple weeks and others taking a couple months. Bottom heating helps immensly, but it cannot be too much...just enough to add a little warmth.

high, no bottom heat! i didn't really consider it since it's spring here and it's usually pretty damn hot during daytime...
my pachanois and cuzcoensis started to pop out in about a week!
my oldest peru/bridgesii trays are from aug 30...
i'll give them more time then. i was thinking there was no chance for them to grow anymore...thanks guitarguy...

what do you have to lose by letting them go a little longer?

I would rather play it on the safe side and just let them go as opposed to giving up on them.  It's only been a little over a month so I'd give them maybe one more month before I give up.

Good Luck with it and let us know how you do :smile:
