    Description

Acanthocalycium mixed species - Sea Urchin Cactus

This listing is for a pack of 25 seeds.

A small group of cactus from Argentina, formerly grouped with Echinopsis, but now considered seperate due to the structure of flower and buds.  Spiny globular cactus, they remain quite small and will flower in only a few years from seed.  The globular bodies have many ribs, each heavily spined. The flowers, produced in late spring, arise near the top of the plant on last years growth and once of flowering size the cactus will flower each year provided new growth has been made.  The flowers themselves come in white, yellow, orange, red and mauve (depending on the species) and are up to 4 cm across.  They are followed by a spiny fruit containing numerous black seeds.

Young plants require a degree of shade and protection from the sun as they normally develop in the shade of another plant until they push through the cover or the shade plant dies (as in the case of a mature cactus).  This need should be observed even in the higher latitudes to protect seedlings from becoming scorched and stunted.

Easy to germinate and grow on, full instructions can be found by going to my 'ME' page and following the links there.
