Zone Mooresville nc | simonebrigham added on June 18, 2022 | Answered

I was buying seeds for my garden and seen the cactus seeds and thought it would be neat to try all the back of the packet said was don’t over water and they don’t need much sun I planted them like 3 weeks ago in cactus soil and haven’t watered with a spray bottle but once or twice since nothing happened yet I have read up on them now and seen where you should have the soil wet and a clear lid on them with plenty of warm sun like a windowsill is it too late for my seeds can I save them
