Decided to do a post to keep everyone up to date on the seeds of Astrophytum caput-medusae.

Seeds Planted on Sunday afternoon 22nd June.

10 seeds per pot using the baggie method and put on a heat mat with thermostat set at 26C with lights on for 16 hours per day.

No action Saturday morning 28th June

Germination sighted Saturday night at 7pm the 28th June..............Whoopeee!!!!!!!!!!

Photos tomorrow Smile

Good looking pics Betty, and they look so healthy. 3 cotyledons seems abnormal but I wouldn't complain - you should have your first tubercle by the end of the week.

Well they say 5 to 10 % will come up with 3 cotyledons and no difference noticed with growth.

Damn I was hoping for something special Laughing

Cool Betty! Hahaha i remember me and Lewis were talking about caput-medusae awhile ago, guess you beat me to getting one hahahahahaha.
How long would it roughly be before they are a decent size?

some years at least, unless they are grafted. It is supposed to be not hard to grow.

Betty graft some to pereskiopsis next spring, although its probably a good idea if you haven't tried before to practise on common seedlings rather than potentially waste digi seedlings!

Update ................ 10 up now Very Happy

I may get game later on with the grafting. I may try one on some echinopsis or thrich though. I have seen some doing really well on echinopsis.

Well done Betty,
15 is a good number out of 40 seed - that's about 35% so far.

3 more days for me and I hope to see my first seed bounce
