Succulents will grow outdoors in zones 3-10 but they dislike soggy soil conditions. It's best to start them in pots in a soil mixture of half coarse sand and half peat. For succulents we like to use a Tupperware type container with a translucent lid the help maintain moisture. These seeds are some of the tiniest seed we sell and are difficult to work with. Best way to handle them is to mix the packet with 1/4 cup of dry sand and use a shaker (like an old spice bottle) to sow them. In the case of pots give each pot a quick shake, or if using 1020 trays you can apply the contents of one packet in the whole tray (using the shaker method). They require light to germinate so do not cover them and if you decide to direct sow them and not use the shaker method lightly dust with sand or vermiculite.
While germinating they do like their soil moist, but not soaking wet. These are slow to germinate, and once germinated grow slowly, so patience is required if you want to grow these. Do not expect them to germinate and create full size succulents in a few days.
Once they germinate, and are about 1/4" tall, you can then add 1/4 strength liquid fertilizer like Miracle Grow to their water (water from the bottom). When they are about 1/2" tall, and in the spring after your last frost, you can transplant them into your garden or into individual pots as they make great potted plants. If happy they will spread and create a unique dense ground cover in the garden.
