Thelocactus hexaedrophorus


Thelocactus hexaedrophorus. (Cactaceae) Native to Mexico. Globose or somewhat flattened above or umbilicate, glaucous, olive-green, or greyish-green eventually tinged in pink or purple, 3-7,5 cm tall , 8-15(-20) in diameter (eventually grows a little taller in cultivation), strongly tubercled and not ribbed. 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
