Cactus Special Mix - 80 seeds

This is a quality selection containing many varieties of easy to grow cacti, all of which are ideally suited to window-sills, sun rooms or greenhouse. Height 10-60cm (4-24in). Flowering most times of year. Packets should contain: Carnegia gigantes, Ferocactus aconthodes, Ferocactus wislenzii. Lemairocereus thurberi. Opuntis phaecantha, Opuntis chtorotica, Pachycereus pringlii, Cylindropuntia Imbricata.

Sow from mid winter to late summer in a free draining compost, just covering the seed with silver sand. Seal in a polythene bag or cover with glass until germination which can take from 2-12 weeks. As this is a mixture, different types will germinate at different times. They will all germinate at 21 -24C (70-75P) but for most rapid results we recommend gradually raising the temperature over a period of 2 weeks from 14C (57P) to 30C (86F), when the large green seed leaf has been observed.

Prick out into 6cm (2in) pots, then 8cm (3in) and 15cm (6in) pots as required, and water carefully until established.
