Escobaria abdita (Neobesseya abdita) (5 seeds)


5 in stock

Escobaria abdita (price per 5 seeds) (Cactaceae) Native to Mexico. The spines are short, ivory to chalk-white, finger-like more or less spindle-shaped, round and four-layered in cross-section in a characteristic radial-pectinate arrangement. 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
