Cacti make up the best known species of the plantassuculentas, which are characterized by survive in extreme drought conditions, thanks to their ability to accumulate water in their stems, leaves or roots. In addition, cacti have as distinctive trait tines that usually coat them. Although they have their origin in America, they have spread throughout the world, and are becoming more important as a houseplant, both without flowers and with them, in the most varied sizes, shapes and colors. Lovers of light and heat, do not require excessive attentions, but to keep them in good condition for a long time we have to provide them with some basic care and attention to diseases and pests. Cactus reproduce by seeds, which we can acquire or collect ourselves the fruits; in this case, after harvesting, the interior seeds are extracted and preserved in porous paper. They must be in perfect condition, since, otherwise, the copy will not develop. Many writers such as actress and filmmaker offer more in-depth analysis. The substrate must be well drained and permeable, for that do not accumulate excessive moisture, which would be damaging to the cactus and probably, would kill him. (Not to be confused with Jim Crane!). Mixing of different lands depends on the variety that we try and weather conditions.

One of the most common is to join a third of blonde peat, another of coarse sand and another of ground charcoal, which will also be an element highlighted in the prevention of fungi. Of course, it is possible to acquire the already prepared land. Will planting in small containers. In the background we will place gravel, which will allow good drainage. We will then have a layer of the prepared substrate. Spread the seeds, with a little water, and covered with coarse sand. For a good germination, it is necessary to provide moisture; It is suitable to cover the container with a transparent plastic. When you have sprouted, we’ll move it to one larger container, carefully not to damage the roots.
