Astrophytum myriostigma

Astrophytum myriostigma: Astrophytum myriostigma seeds should be planted in well-draining soil and kept in a warm, bright location. It is important to avoid overwatering as the seeds are susceptible to rot. Germination can take anywhere from 2 weeks to 2 months depending on the conditions.

Some of plants may have very have specific germination requirements that may not be covered in these general instructions. 

Many seeds require pre-treatment before sowing which we try to list here when we can, but this information may not be present here.  Germination times and germination temperatures are to be a guide only.  Many factors can DRASTICALLY affect this.


It's always a good idea to research the specific germination requirements from multiple sources for each plant before attempting to grow them from seed.
