Dolichothele camptotricha (Mammillaria decipiens subs. camptotricha)


Dolichothele camptotricha. It is a small plant that make a large, flattish clump of stems clustering from the lower part. Not only it has long slender tubercles, which are similar to those of other Dolicothele species, it also has very long twisted spines, which on mature plants, completely envelop the body. 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
