Echinocereus branegeei (100 seeds)


Out of stock

Echinocereus brandegeei (Cactaceae) Native to Mexico. The stems always grow in clusters, which vary from a few stems to great loose mounds more than 2 m across and less than 35 cm tall. Spines are extremely variable, ranging from long and thin to short and stout, and yellow, reddish, brown, black, or whitish at first often tinged with red, in age dark grey. Flowers are bight pink to purplish with deep red petal bases. 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 : December 2018
