    I would add that any organic matter should be sterilized using an oven or microwave to eliminate fungus.

    What do plan to do with them once they are bigger? Reason I am asking is my husband and I sell stuff at our flea market and if I can get the hang of growing more cactus I was thinking about trying to sell?

    Does cacti need white grow light? It is because I only have red/blue grow light.

    My stepdad just bought me some "succulent seeds" from Wish, and I was wondering if you had any suggestions on how to attempt growing them? Wish is pretty riddled with scams so I'm honestly doubtful that these seeds are what they claim to be but I figured I'd give it a go anyway, as they were a gift, and I don't want to tell my stepdad that I don't think they're actually succulent seeds. They claim to be that 'spiral grass succulent', but I know nothing about it or how to try to grow it. Also, if they're not the spiral grass succulent seeds, what are they likely to actually be?

    I enjoyed this video – I grew cacti when I was a teen and recently inherited some of my mother's plants. Did a search on YT and your videos popped up – just perfect for me wanting to get going again with some seeds, I'll check out the sucsforyou site too.

    For me, it's easier and more uniform to sift the final layer directly over the seed trays.
    I've also had really good luck with and without using a top layer…try both and see what works for you.
