Thanks to its striking form, size and flowers, a cactus is a perfect addition to your house. It is a special and elegant way to add value to your living room, whether on your windowsill or clustered together on a shelf.

A cactus is a member of the Cactaceae family of plants, a family of about 127 genera with some 1750 recognized Caryophyllales species of the order. Via Latin the word "cactus" derives from the ancient Greek kaktos, a name originally used by Theophrastus for a spiny plant whose existence is now unknown.

Germination Instructions:

  1. Prepare a suitable growing medium. Cacti prefer well-draining soil that is slightly acidic and low in organic matter. You can use a commercial cactus mix or make your own by combining equal parts of sand, perlite, and peat moss. Sterilize the soil by baking it in an oven at 180°F for 30 minutes to kill any pathogens or pests.
  2. Fill a shallow tray or pot with the soil and moisten it lightly. Do not overwater the soil or it will become soggy and cause the seeds to rot. You can use a spray bottle to mist the soil evenly.
  3. Scatter the seeds on the surface of the soil and press them gently into the soil. Do not cover the seeds with soil as they need light to germinate. You can sow several seeds in one tray or pot, but make sure they are spaced at least an inch apart to avoid overcrowding.
  4. Cover the tray or pot with clear plastic wrap or a glass lid to create a humid and warm environment for the seeds. Place the tray or pot in a bright location but avoid direct sunlight as it can overheat the seeds and dry out the soil. The ideal temperature for cactus seed germination is between 70°F and 85°F.
  5. Check the tray or pot daily and mist the soil lightly if it looks dry. Do not remove the plastic wrap or lid until you see signs of germination, which can take anywhere from a few days to several weeks.
  6. Once the seeds have sprouted, remove the plastic wrap or lid and move the tray or pot to a cooler and less humid location. Gradually expose the seedlings to more light and air circulation, but avoid direct sunlight and drafts. Water the seedlings sparingly and only when the soil feels dry to the touch.
  7. Transplant the seedlings into individual pots when they are large enough to handle, usually after a few months of growth. Use a similar soil mix as before and be careful not to damage the roots or spines of the seedlings. Continue to provide bright light, moderate temperature, and occasional watering for your cacti until they are established and ready to be moved outdoors or to their final location.
