Succulent Seeds: How To Grow, Reliable Source & Tips (mesembs & More)


Hello, Everyone, This is Sheila. Would you like to learn how to grow succulents from seeds? Are you also looking for a good, reliable source of these succulent seeds? I’’m so excited to say that this video is for you. You’’ll also see some super cute baby succulents like Lithops, Split Rocks, Desert Roses, Greenovias and more So. Let’’s proceed. Key Point Number 1, is to use the right soil combination. So we are starting with a soggy wet. Coconut, Coir And then we’re adding cactus soil mix and perlite to make it a bit fast-draining but not too much So. What type of environment do you think we need to create for these succulent seeds? Ironically, all succulent seeds need to be sown in a wet soil mix. Succulent seeds need humidity so that the seed coat will be soft enough for our baby succulents to push out. I just have to show it again, ‘cause. This is super cute. Again, make sure that your soil has to be really wet. Before I show you how to sow the seed’s Key Point Number two, which I think is very important, is to buy them only from a reliable source. Who are you buying it from? The seeds that we’re sowing today are from unusualseedsnet. This is how their website looks. So please take note it’’s unusualseedsnet and not dot com. Later in this video, I’’m also excited to share with you. Our coupon code. Who doesn’t love coupons? I love discounts. I’’ll talk more about the great stuff that they have, but for now, Let’’s proceed to Key Point Number 3 ‘cause. We have seeds waiting to be sown. So Key Point Number 3 is still to use pots with drainage holes. ‘cause we will be spraying the soil a lot while we are germinating to keep it moist. Key Point Number 4, is also very important, which is before sowing the seeds. Make sure that you have properly labeled zip lock bags, especially if you are sowing multiple kinds of succulent seeds. These bags are helpful with keeping moisture in the air and soil, And you’’ll also see how it’’s done later. Key Point Number 5 is to start putting the soggy, wet soil in the pots and allowing excess water to drip out. Another method is to put dry cactus soil mix in a pot and place it in a basin of water and allow it to soak up. Key Point Number 5 is all about sowing the seeds. There are lots of creative ways of doing this, and since some of the seeds are so tiny. I’’m showing you my method of making sure that I won’’t lose any. So I use this paper. You can use any kind of paper as long as it has a smooth surface and you’’ll see why in a bit. So this is without the seeds first, okay So. We are laying this paper flat on the floor if your pot is on the floor. And we are going to place the seeds in the middle, and then we will make a canal for the seeds to slide through. That’’s why we need a smooth paper. So here it is with the seeds this time. Some use moist toothpick and that’’s an option too. It’’s just that there is just too much risk of dropping the seeds else where other than the pot? See how these are like dusts. Can you even see it? I think you see it better. See how you can easily drop the seeds and you can’’t even tell if they are dust or not. Later in this video, I’’m also sharing a little experiment that I did. So keep watching. Adenium seeds are actually bigger, so we can use tweezers to pick it up and put them in place. You have the option to soak these seeds in water for thirty minutes or just make sure that the soil is always wet and they will sprout babies. Please take note that we didn’’t push the seeds in. Then we are just shoving very little wet soil on top to soak up the seeds further. Once all the seeds are sown. Key Point Number 6 is to cover the them with fine sand with using wire mesh. For this I’’m using my succulent tweezers to shake up the sand. About 3 to 10, millimeter of fine sand is enough to cover the succulent seeds. Key Point Number 7 is to make sure that you mist that top soil again. Before I give you Key Point Number 8, as promised, Unusualseedsnet is giving you guys. A whopping 30% discount and the discount code is thisAgain for a 30% discount. Simply use this discount code.

Key Point Number 8, after covering with fine sand and misting place each pot in the labeled zip lock bags. Key Point Number 9 is to put them under a grow light. Grow lights as the name implies encourages growth and helps maintain a temperature of about 70 to 75 degrees Fahrenheit, which is the ideal temperature for them. Temperatures can drop to as low as upper 60’s as long as they are under grow lights. As promised here are the succulent babies. So these are the baby Split Rocks. I had to use toothpicks to hold them. Upright ‘cause. Some of them has gotten leggy and they are too top heavy. These guys will grow to this. Here are the Lithops. They are starting to look more like Lithop’s now. At first, they were just like little round buttons. These babies will soon be like this. And here’’s the Tiger Jaws. We only have one for now, but pretty soon there will be more. They just sprout at their own pace and they will be this. Here’’s the Anacampseros rufescens. You can barely see anything for now. I think the camera might be able to pick them up. And these guys will turn to this And here’’s one of the Adeniums. The rest of these are eager beavers and a lot bigger than this hesitant guy and I’’ll show you those in a bit So. If you would look at this little baby here, you can tell that she is well ahead of the other one. Her seed coat is already off and she has leaves growing on her. These guys were all sown on the same day, and this leads me to Key Point Number 10, which is don’’t, expect the seeds to sprout on the same day. Factors like maturity of the seeds, temperatures and the amount of moisture affects the rate of growth. So be patient and remember how rewarding it is. And since I love experimenting. I didn’’t put fine sand on this one. This was actually the first to sprout, but practically all growers. Even I would tell you to cover them with fine sand. See the difference? You will find that there are so many ways of growing succulents from seeds, And so as I always say, feel free to try new things. And these guys are going to grow into this big, gorgeous, flowering, succulent! These Greenovias are the last ones to sprout. They sprouted two weeks after everyone else. I’’m guessing more will be sprouting in the spring, so be sure to subscribe. So you guys won’’t miss the next update video ‘cause. These guys will soon be this. And here’’s my favorite ‘cause. They look like little green balloons, and it seems like they all sprouted around the same time too. And these cute little balloons will grow to be an even cuter Conophytum calculu’s Again.
