Frailea angelesii

Frailea angelesii: Frailea angelesii, a cactus species, can be grown from seed. To germinate the seeds, plant them in a well-draining cactus mix and cover them lightly with soil. Keep the soil moist but not waterlogged and place the container in a warm, bright location. It is important to keep the soil warm, so using a heat mat is recommended. Germination usually takes 1-3 weeks.

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.
