    Description

Stenocereus mixed species

This listing is for a pack of 25 seeds.

Another cactus with a series of confusing names.  This was originally called Echinofossulocatus, but there were problems with this name, including objections to its length and the frequency it was mis-spelt.  Now in Stenocactus, things are still not stable as its obvious close relationship to the barrel cacti (Ferocactus) has the taxonomist looking at it all again.  Whatever the outcome, these are small barrel cactus found in the same habitat as their larger cousins.  Never more than a few to 10's of cm tall, they are characterised by their thin ribs, often wavy.  Flowers are produced on quite small specimens in late spring, each flower lasting a few days.  The spines are often quite stout and many have flattened central spines (again similar to Ferocactus).  Grow these either for the form of the plants or the flowers, they offer something for everyone in an easy to grow cactus.

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.
