Entheogenic garden posted a topic in Cacti & SucculentsHey guys, So I want to get into growing cacti but I'm overwhelmed by all the trichocereus strains and what not. Could someone make my life easy and recommend what they consider to be the 'classic' or 'essential' varieties/strains to begin with? Cheers! EG
Today I sowed my first seeds. I purchased them from SAB as Ech. Lageniformis x Ech. Peruviana 'KK1688' and sowed 12. I used a cactus soil mixed with about 50% perlite. Unfortunately the perlite wasn't as coarse as I would have liked. I then mixed and added some water before sterilising in the oven (100C) for 20 minutes. I purchased a small seed germinating box which should help increase humidity with spraying. I added my soil mixture to each of the 12 sections and then bathed the base in water before putting the potted area into the bottom covering. Next came the most exciting sowing. I sowed the seeds by just placing one in each section and then lightly misting before covering the germination box. I have sat it outside but out of direct sunlight. I may consider changing its position depending on temperature and sun. I still have enough seed to retry if I fail. Any advice welcome. I am very excited.
