Growing Blossfeldia liliputana from seeds? Solved

I have 30 seeds for this plant, and I have just discovered that they are very small and slow-growing! A guide I found has said to Water during the aestival growth cycle from March till October. Firstly, I am not sure what aestival means! They also don't like being wet so shall I use a grittier potti...

Re: Astrophytum caput-medusae; second generation

@ralph or others, any tips for sowing these? Open-air or baggie method? I will be sowing these 5 seeds in a 1:1 mix soon and I hope they're still viable! I have had these seeds since May from the BCSS seed pool.

Re: Tephrocactus geometricus seed germination

I would like to sow these seeds soon. I have 5 chunky seeds and have read this thread because I know they are hard to germinate! 9 years later, does anyone have any good tips? It is not possible for me to keep them in a 35c room whatsoever. Is there an acid that can be used to strip the coating or s...

Re: Sowing Massonia seeds.

I got home from uni today and to my delight, some massonias have germinated! (I'm pretty sure they're massonias, two very small green leaves :D

I'm so glad I don't have to wait til next year, but now I just need to keep them alive!

Re: Quick question about indoor lighting.

Unfortunately, I can't work out what chip my light uses, but it is samsung. I have these at the moment and they seem pretty bright. My other lights have been dispatched and will arrive either today or tomorrow, so it doesn't really matter on the outcome. https://www.v-tac.eu/products-view/office-ret...

Quick question about indoor lighting.

I just bought some nice led strips that will provide enough light for the plants, however, I managed to buy 4000k and not the 6400k lights.

I have ordered the 6400k but will the 4000k be fine?

Re: Very successful germination rate!

odd seed manages to splash across into an adjacent pot I painstakingly placed each seed with a screwdriver :lol: :lol: (apart from the large clump of lithops, gave up at that point) I just don't have the space to store all these seeds in individual pots so if it means that some get mixed up, I'm al...
