Succulent Seedlings

Decided to clean out my box of seed collected from a variety of sources. Found an envelope labeled succulent seed, grass-like, with a harvested date in 2016.

Half filled one inch paper pots with cactus mix. Planted 5 seed in each pot–one each corner and one in the center (March 21, 2018).

April 23, 2018 I found sprouts emerging from what appears to be small bulbs. The seedlings are so small and fine, I missed the transformation from seed to seedling.

Pretty sure the seeds were harvested from this plant.

Recently the plant had numerous small white flowers, followed by seed pods. I had been tossing the seed into a cactus mix filled terra cotta pot.

Yesterday (April 27, 2018) I placed five succulent seed on a dampened bamboo towel.

Then placed the lot inside a plastic bag.

The plan is to keep the bamboo towel slightly damp and to wait (hope) for the transformation.
