1 week old Cotyledon tomentosa seedlings

There are so many seedlings now and more are still germinating. I have already harvested the next 10 flowers and will be keeping the seeds in a dark and dry place for the next few months. Next week I’ll have just around 600-900 seeds for if this batch fails.

I still keep them under grow lights in a bag to keep humidity up until the rest of the seeds have germinated. I don’t know exactly when you’re supposed to remove the bag and allow the seedlings to grow in lower humidity. Usually, succulents can handle lower humidity earlier than cactus seedlings, but these are just so tiny! They’re only 2 mm wide and haven’t reached their succulent stage yet. This really is a trial and error adventure.
