Hylocereus Undatus seeds should be spread across a sterilized cactus substrate mix. Cover the seed with a thin layer of substrate mix and mist the surface to settle down the soil and seeds. Cover with a humidity bag, dome, or plastic wrap. Place the container in a warm place with partial shade and keep the soil moist, but not soaking wet. Seeds will germinate best with high temp in the day and low temp at night. Seeds should germinate within 7-20 days. Mist or bottom water when the soil is almost dry. Even with optimal conditions some seeds may be slow or sporadic in their germination. Place established plants in full sun to partial shade. Too much shade will make cacti and succulents etiolate during growth.
