Gymnocalycium calochlorum


Gymnocalycium calochlorum. (Cactaceae) Clustering chin cactus. Native to Argentina. It is a small flattened cactus forming low, flat-topped clusters of many stems that grow level to soil. The spines are wispy and mostly pinkish brown. The light pink flowers are trumpet shaped over 5 cm across at the widest point. 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
