Hi, I have few questions:
1. When did you take them out of the humid environment in the closed box?
2. After removing them from the closed boxes, how often did you water them?

Hoping for response which I didn't get here, I contacted few growers in Thailand and Italy (where I got the seeds from) on FB.

Here are the results of my germination of P. Migiurtinus and P. Cubiformis:

Migiurtinus is a week old (the pot with 20 seeds out of almost 20 sprouted) and Cubiformis is few days old (5 sowed, all 5 germinated)

Basically the instruction was to germinate them in open pots. Mist them everyday, gradually reduce it to once in 2 days but keep watering them till they are 3-4 months old. Then gradually move to 10-12 days watering regime.

Leopoldo from Wild Cactus Nursery. P.Cubiformis seeds are very expensive (5 seeds 30 Euros) but germination rate is very good.

Yes, but I heard bad reviews about germination rate of Koehres in general, so didn't take a chance. Having said it, they recently added P. Harard at the same price which I thought would be fresh as added recently so I ordered it.
