An exciting mix of all sorts of easy to grow cacti, which are all well suited to window sills, sun rooms or greenhouses. It’s easy to grow a cactus, and this fun mix means that you never know quite what you are going to grow! These low maintenance plants are the perfect way to start a new collection that will produce a fascinating display which will last for many years. With maturity, many Cacti will produce bright, showy flowers. Height and spread: 15cm (6").


1 packet (20 seeds) (KB5903)

Sow cactus seed from January to April. Sow cacti on the surface of a free draining, gritty compost and cover with a very fine sprinkling of silver sand. Place in a propagator or seal the seed tray inside a polythene bag, maintaining a temperature of 20-25C (68-77F) until after germination, which can be erratic and usually takes between 1 - 3 months. Do not exclude light when growing cacti as this helps germination.

Keep the surface of the compost moist but not waterlogged. When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant them into trays or 5cm (2”) pots of gritty potting mix and continue to grow in warm conditions. Once they are well grown, pot cactus plants on into 7.5cm (3") pots, and water carefully until established.

Cactus plants are slow growing so patience is required. Grow cacti in full light with some shelter from the hottest sun. In summer, water cacti regularly with soft water or rain water. Allow the compost to dry out slightly between watering. In winter, while the plant is dormant, gradually reduce watering and allow the compost to remain dry. An average temperature of 10-23C (50-75F) is ideal, although many Cacti can tolerate lower temperatures down to a minimum of 5C (40F).
