2 Month progress and first water since starting Astrophytum asterias seedlings (200+ germinated!)

Here’s a 2 month update on the Astrophytum asterias I started back on February 8th 2024 in the video ‘Sterilizing soil and starting Astrophytum asterias seeds – Microwave and plastic bag methods.’

This is the first time watering them since I started them. I’m keeping them bagged for at least another month to help them build stronger roots and defenses against fungal gnats and soil pathogens like mildew.
