Of course. Ariocarpus is a cactus and thus they have thorns. If you look at the matured Ariocarpus agavoides, there are a few thorns per tubercle. derelor, can sell me 1 or 2 seedlings once they are large to handle?

I don't want to keep too many seedling. Maybe each type 2 is enough. Extra I like to giveaway.
Anyone want can pm me.

Cos I am using clay thumb pots mah. If I expose the whole pot, it will dry out very quickly, and it will be difficult for the humidity to reach the top of the thumb pot. When I bury 2/3 of the thumb pot, the lower portion will still be moist with only the top part having good air movement. This in what I created after reading books and posts, and guessing what is the best style. Unfortunately, I think it doesn't work so well with fine seeds.

cheers

I sowed the seeds last night. Did not know that the seeds of Pseduolithos migiurtinus are so 'big'. Should have accepted Cactus Lee offer of his seeds when I was there last Nov. Will post once they germinate.

Pictures please. :drool:/> What are your secrets to make them grow to 1cm within 3 months? Flowering within a year? :notworthy:/> I will combine the methods of both yourself and Damian to grow them provided they germinate. :closedeyes:/> Damian's ones are big too. More than 1 cm. Very cute. I have reserved the cutest of them all. :hysterical:/>

I just water when the soil is dry with little fertilizer added. Only suntan on weekends else under artificial lights. And they still share the aircon room with me. :lol:/>

3 out of 4 types of seeds germinated, funny the one that did not sprout, the seed size is quite big one, almost like a "o" this size one. Thought normally is bigger easier to grow one.

Seedlings still very small. Success fate is very good, considering how 50% of all my store brought seeds don't even grow a bean sprout.

Still have 4-6 pack/type of seeds left, not enuf plastic bottle to cut. Will sow them during the new year holidays, drink more soft drinks, get the plastic bottles.
