    Description

Notocactus leninighausii - The Golden Ball Cactus

This listing is for a pack of 25 seeds.

A bit of a nomad as far as naming is concerned, this cactus has been called an Echinocatus, Eriocactus, Notocatus and finally clumped with several seemingly unrelated types in Parodia.  We still like to think of it as Notocactus, because the clumping in Parodia is not universally accepted or liked.  Known as the Golden Ball, primarily after the shape and form of the seedlings up to about 3 years old, when they start to lengthen and turn into a short column.  This cactus has many ribs, with soft long spines that are golden yellow.  When old enough (around 3 - 4 years old) , it will begin to flower.  Generally it has one flush of flowers in late spring and a second in late summer, early autumn.  The flowers are bright yellow and up to 6 cm across - lasting for a few days each.

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.
