TROPICA® - Lamella Cactus (Echinofossulocactus lamellosus) - 40 Seeds
Worth knowing: This easy to care for cactus with its up to 40 ribs or lamella is growing in the shape of a ball. It is because of the lamella that it is also known as lamella cactus. It is growing thornes and the mid-sized, bright purple to pink coloured flowers appear in spring, directly at the apex. The ball is blue-green and grows to a height of 10 cm.
Origin: Indigenous to Mexico.
Propagation: Seeds can be started indoors at any time throughout the year. Mix fine ground cultivation soil with about 25 % of fine sand (silica sand works best). In order to guarantee that the seeds will not fall through the soil, the soil mixture should not be too coarse. Moisten the mixture with a water vaporiser and sprinkle the fine seeds on the soil. All cacti are light germinators, therefore the seeds should be left uncovered. Sufficient warmth (16 to 25°C) and high humidity are crucial now.
Place / Light: The peyotl likes sunny window sills.
Care: Exposed to full sun, the cactus should only be watered on the ground so that no burn marks will develop. Because of its large surface (since it has so many lamella) the cactus requires a lot of water during the whole summer.
Winter period: Water the cactus more than other cacti, even during winter and in cooler positions, for the lamella cactus simply has a very large surface.
Bonsai Suitability: No
