Echinocereus poselgeri - Dahlia Cactus

This listing is for a pack of 25 seeds.

This cactus is native to Southern Texas and Northern Mexico. It grows in sandy soils at low elevations. This cactus was previously known as Wilcoxia poselgeri, but recent genetic evidence showed a clear relationship to Echinocereus. The plant has several stems that clamber through nearby vegetation. These stems arise from a tuberous, dahlia like rootsock (giving it its common name). It is also known as the Pencil Cactus or Lead Pencil Cactus due to the thin stems. The stems themseleves are up to 2 cm in diameter (often less) and up to 1.2 metres tall. It has 8 - 10 ribs, with spines up to 9mm long. It flowers in late spring from the tips of the older stems. The flowers are funnel shaped, pinkish magenta - an almost glowing colour, lasting 1 - 2 days. These are followed by a spiny dry fruits containing numerous 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.
