4 different succulents to sow..Mesembs maybe? Need help

danesnpits(2a)July 24, 2014

I attached a photo of the seeds I have on the way. First time sower of these succulents and would love to have any guidance, tips to be successful. If anyone has a step by step instruction link that contains type of soil used, light, fertilizers once they pop up, water requiremnts etc etc. I would be forever grateful. I am not sure if these are all mesembs though, so if there are different requirements for each species could you let me know? You guys are fantastic! Thank you so much.

There are probably more sources out there containing greater detail, but try mesa gardens. Good luck!

Use a sterile potting soil for these seeds. I recently got a similar mix on eBay and sowed them in a commercial cacti soil mix. They would sprout and look good for a couple of days then disappear. I assume it was damping off.
