Growing Pitaya from Seeds | 'Planting' Pitaya Seeds

Growing Pitaya from Seeds | 'Planting' pitaya seeds to grow the first pitaya seedlings & Selecting 'soil' medium: To get started growing pitaya from seeds the first step is to choose a 'soil' medium which will meet the pitaya growing needs for the pitaya seeds as they sprout and form the first small pitaya seedlings. The term 'soil' and 'planting' are kind of approximations here, but we'll use them anyway. You aren't so much as planting pitaya seeds as just giving the pitaya seeds the signal to grow to pitaya seedlings which you will then harvest.

So, your aim in growing pitaya from seeds is to actually grow pitaya seedlings, which you will then plant - so you are not sowing seeds where the pitaya cactus plants will grow to maturity. Therefore, the 'soil' medium you want is really a soil for simply sprouting the pitaya seeds and not growing the pitaya cactus plant. This means that you want an exceptionally loose soil medium which will allow you to plant the pitaya seeds as close together as possible and let you easily separate the pitaya seedlings from one another as the pitaya seeds sprout and the pitaya seedlings put down roots.
