What to do with tiny cactus babies

10 years ago

I bought a succulent at the store today and it had these teeny tiny little cactus babies in it.. That's my thumb in the second pic for size comparison.. I'm assuming that a cactus flower went to seed and some of them fell into this container and sprouted.. I would have left them in with the plant they were with but while I was getting in the car the wind blew the plant over and these came loose..

What I need to know is what do I do with them? Don't know about the smaller ones, but I'm pretty sure the bigger one has started a root.. Do I put them in some sandy soil and keep them moist or do I wait until I'm sure they've grown some roots? Any advice is greatly appreciated..
