Ariocarpus trigonus var. horacekii (Ariocarpus retusus subs. trigonus)


Ariocarpus trigonus var. horacekii

Family: Cactaceae

Common names: Living Rock, Star Rock.

It is one of the largest species that distinguishes for the long leaf-like triangular tubercles and peculiar yellow flowers.

Sowing instructions: 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.
