    Description

Machaerocereus gummosus - Dagger Cactus

This listing is for a pack of 25 seeds.

This is a bu
shy cactus with numerous stems branching from ground level.  Fiercely spined, the flattened central spines are up to 4 cm long, looking like stout daggers. The flowers have long slender tubes and are purplish white up to 14 cm long, they open at night and are quite heavily scented.  The stems of the plant contain chemical compounds that when crushed they are used by locals to stupefy fish.  It is only found on Baja California and nowhere else (along with the closely related Creeping Devil cactus).

Even though it grows in hard desert conditions, young seedlings should be kept shaded at all times to avoid any scorch.  In habitat this shade would be provided by other vegetation.

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