HOW TO PLANT HEDGEHOG CACTUS SEEDS
When To Plant
Cacti do best if planted directly outdoors in late Autumn or early Spring.
Where To Plant Your Cactus
Cacti only need soil that is ordinary and moist, but well drained. They also do well in full sun.
How To Plant
The seeds should not be planted deeply; they just need to be compressed into the soil, as they need light to germinate.
If planting in rows, then plant the seeds 6” to 8” apart.
How To Care For Your Hedgehog Cactus
This variety of cactus seed generally germinates in about 20 days. You can thin the seedlings to 6” to 8” apart after they emerge.
The Hedgehog Cactus should be watered sparingly, but they can tolerate dry conditions well. It is not necessary to fertilize cacti.
It generally takes about 60 to 120 days for a cactus plant to bloom after the seed is planted.
