Next spread the seeds over the surface and give them a quick spray so that they stick firmly to the bottom.
Cover the container with cling film or a lid and place it in a warm, bright place.
be careful with direct sunlight, it can cook your cacti!
For best results, try to keep the temperature around 25ºC and the humidity at 80-90%.
When most of the seeds are germinated, you can carefully start ventilating the plants by poking a few holes in the foil or removing the lid for acouple of minutes every day.
After about 3 months you can let them get used to a drier environment by providing increasingly more ventilation. You can do this by piercing more and more holes in the foil, or by removing the lid a little longer every day. Make sure that the cacti get enough fresh air, but beware that they don't dry out. After about 6 months, they are slightly over a centimeter in size and you can transplant them, this happens best in soil suitable for cacti.
