Typical Cactus mix is 50% white pumice, 25% coarse, sharp sand, and 25% organic matter such as coir or compost. Many growers use gallon pots and stretch plastic over the top of the pot to create a mini-greenhouse effect. When seedlings emerge, prop them up with bits of pumice to help them stay positioned and root in. Do not dislodge when watering.
