I'm trying to grow prickly pear cacti from seeds for the first time. I had the seeds planted in sandy soil in a sealed plastic bag until they germinated. I've had them out of the bag for about a week and I'm not sure if they are growing correctly. They aren't standing up straight and look really thin. Any advice on making sure they are getting the care they need to grow well? Thank you!

Hmmmm.... Those don't look like baby prickly pears. Sighing!

Thank you DaisyL. I ordered them from Amazon and have run into the issue of not getting the seeds I actually ordered.

Can you suggest a good place to order succulent and cactus seeds online?

Thank you!
