Q.Growing Night Blooming Cereus from seed, not cutting

Zone Petoskey, MI 49770 | sunnyg added on October 10, 2017 | Answered

Our family has had Night Blooming Cereus Plants for decades, and have shared hundreds of cuttings. I decided to try to grow a plant from seed, after the last bloom on my plant. It’s embarrassing to admit that I don’t know what a sprout froma Night Blooming Cereus would look like. I had some early sprouts in the pot, but it soon became clear that some were just weeds. Does anybody have a photo of an actual sprout from seed?

This link has a picture of its closest relative, the dragonfruit: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/d/d8/Pitaya_%28seedling%29.jpg The seedling of it looks exactly like the seedling of the cereus. This will be what you are looking for. Here is an article on the care of these:https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/cacti-succulents/night-blooming-cereus/night-blooming-cereus-cuttings.htm
