RE: planting cactus seeds???

From what I've seen, many use a gritty mix and not seed starter which is meant for annual/perennial type seeds. Use a mix of perlite, granite, turface course sand, etc. Just place the seed on the top and let them "wash" into the mix. Keep them warm. Hopefully someone with more smarts than myself will chime in.
