Echinofossulocactus mix (stenocactus)


Echinofossulocactus mix (stenocactus). (Cactaceae)  The shape is mostly globular, but with age tends to become columnar; the color is usually  bright green. The characteristic that distinguishes it is the special indentations that geometrically divide the surface. The effect is given by  the fact that the ribs along the trunk, also common to other cacti, are particularly pronounced and frequent. Thus the stem portions appear narrow, nearly lamellar. 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
