How I grew echeveria from seed

I've been growing succulents for almost three years now and I think this has to be, hands down, the most rewarding and exciting way I have grown succulents yet. Growing from seed has two main advantages, you can get plants that may be rare and hard to source where you live and it is very cost effective. 4 month old echeveria laui seedlings When growing from seed the most important thing is the seed quality, the fresher they are the more likely they are to germinate. Bearing this in mind you have to source your seed carefully, I can't count the number of people that I have seen posting across succulent groups who have been scammed and sent fake seeds. For this grow I bought my seeds from  rareplant  and was very impressed by the germination rate I achieved. Take care and read reviews before you buy your seeds from anywhere. For this grow I used echeveria laui seeds and echeveria mexican giant seeds. First things first, you are going to need something to grow your seeds
