13 in stock

Ancistrocactus tobuschii (price per 10 seeds) (Sclerocactus brevihamatus subs. tobuschi) Tobusch fishhook cactus. Native to Mexico. It is a small deep-seated cactus with hooked spines. The plant is usually solitary and almost identical to the standard species but with fewer radial spines, flatter stems and with flower tending to appear a little late. Sowing : Fill a pot with a moist, gritty, loam-based compost, or cacti compost. Gently firm down and level the surface. Scatter your mixed cactus seeds over the surface, taking care not to sow them too thickly. Gently sprinkle a thin layer of vermiculite or fine grit over the seeds, covering the whole surface of the compost. Leave the pot in a greenhouse or on a warm windowsill, covered with a clear plastic bag to preserve soil moisture. Seedlings will develop within a few weeks. Remove the plastic bag and water when the compost becomes dry, but spray the surface with water regularly, to keep it moist. Locality: Ex Hort. Harvest: January 2024
