3 in stock

Parodia magnifica. Balloon cactus, Green Ball Cactus, Blue Ball Cactus. Native to Brazil, Paraguay, Uruguay, Argentina. It is a bluish-green geometric globular cactus with wool that grows in clusters and produce brilliant yellow flowers. These cacti develop a slight depression on the crown, which may become distorted with age. 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
