 Astrophytum capricorne

Common name(s): Goat's Horns Cactus The Goat's Horn (capricorne) is named for the characteristic shape of its long, curled spines.


Recommended Temperature Zone: USDA Zone 9-11

Description:
Solitary globe or columnar cactus.
Growth Habits: This species will eventually slowly produce a tapered column up to 1.2 m in height.
Stem although young plants are globular, they soon become ovoid, and eventually columnar up to 1.2 m tall, 10 (15) cm in diameter. The epidermis of is more or less covered with the typical white woolly flecks characteristic of the genus.
Ribs: Usually 8.
Spines: 5 to 10 up to 7 cm long, Grey to brown wired, twisted, curved, flattened that look like the horn of a Capricorn. As plant ages spines get a bit more intense and messier, but relatively sparse, they are stiff but pliable and fragile, so, plant should be handled with care. The fine spines of this species are an optical artifice supporting the grass-mimicry to the surroundings.

Flowers: Sweet smelling 7.5 cm wide, yellow with a red center.
Blooming Habits The Astrophytum capricorne blooms in summer. The sweet smelling 3 inch wide flowers (7.5 cm) are yellow with a red center. They are followed by a reddish fruit covered with flattened spines, 1 inch in diameter (2.5 cm)

Astrophytum coahuilense

Common Name(s): Hat of white bishop, Bishop's Cap, Bishop's Miter,
Mitra, Bonete de Obispo


Description: Globular cactus devoid of sting introducing 5 well marked and angled ribs. The epidermis is covered with a flocks very dense (dawned whites) giving a downy and dirty aspect to the plant, what allows him a perfect mimicry with its environment where it
becomes confused among calcareous stones (white - grey) between which they grow.
The flowers are yellow with a characteristic red throat, although can appear pure red or very seldom pure yellow. In the fruit which is red till olive-green coloured and basal opening are up to 200 seeds. Stalk: Globular; then becomes more cylindrical and columnare with age; up to a height of 50cm and diameter of 20-30cm Ribs: These 5 coasts appear from the stadium of seedling, it is a very stable character. There is only on the old individuals that additional coasts can sometimes appear.
Flowers: become blooming at about 3-4 years. Flowers have the root, as all Astrophytum, in the apex at the root of every new areola. The size of the flower (diameter maxi 9 cm)
Cultivation: is not too difficult in a greenhouse, although grows quite slowly. The plants need a loose well-drained mineral soil. They need a good amount of light. Watering can be done weekly during summertime, if the weather is sunny enough, with a little fertilizer added. Kept this way, plants will show a healthy, although slow growth.
Min Temperature: They are frost hardy to -4° (-10°) C
Propagation Methods: By seeds, remembering that seedlings dislike strong light and dry conditions and need to be repotted frequently. Eventually, as they become mature, they attain a maximum size of 8-10 cm (20) cm. However, old plants become senile and have a tendency to succumb to disease and a weak root system. At this stage, as is well known, they die suddenly. So, after they reach 10 cm in diameter grow them slowly, and adopt a new repotting period, using intervals of every 2 - 3 years. Additionally grow them under drier conditions or with stronger sunlight. But plants are often grafted to accelerate growth as they would generally take at least a five years to reach maturity on their own, but the grafted plants are typical rather tall growing, compared with plants on their own roots that are usually more flat to the ground.

Astrophytum myriostigma Japanese cultivar ONZUKA


Origin: Japan, Garden origin (Nursery produced cultivar)

Description: Astrophytum myriostigma is a quite variable species and several breeds do exist. The "Onzuka" is probably the most beautiful, sought after and attractive of all.
The cultivar 'ONZUKA' (In Japanese speaking "Onzuka Ranpo-gyoku") has snowy-white, heavily speckled epidermis with fabulous markings much like the ‘kabuto’ asterias. The white marking varies considerably from plant to plant and there exist an enormous number of different designs, and also plants change their appearance in age and they are full of surprises as they grows.

Austrocylindropuntia vestita

Common name(s): include: "Cotton Coral Cactus", "Cotton Pole", "Old Man Opuntia"

Recommended Temperature Zone: USDA: 10-11

It is usually a slender columnar white and very furry cactus from high altitude. The standard plants form branch both basally and near the top of the stems.

Mammillaria nejapensis

Common Name(s): Silver Arrows.

It forms globular stems with silvery white spines with black tips up to 2" in length, and dense wool at the areoles. After a year the head of plant divided, than every heads divided again. Do you imagine how unusual will be this cactus?

Mammillaria nejapensis is very variable, especially for the length of the spines, and at the beginning there were two recognized varieties: var. brevispina and var. longispina, with respectively short and long spines, but they are merely local or individual variations. This species branches basally or more frequently forms large colonies by dichotomous division.

Description: This is one of the Mammillaria commonly called "Owl Eye Cactus", known for dichotomous branching (forking or dividing into two parts). Although dichotomous branching is not a common occurrence in cacti in general, it happens for some reason in this particular subspecies. What is interesting about this cactus is that it began as a single head, and it has now divided twice, forming what will be four separate branches. When the division process started, it was obvious that four heads would appear, but I don’t think the one head divided quadruple. Most probably, one head became two, and then those two immediately divided.
The Mammillaria nejapensis forms globular stems with silvery white spines up to 2" in length, and dense wool at the areoles. Plant becomes slightly columnar to 6" in height. Each single stem begins to divide to form two stems to form large clusters.
Stem: Globose to short cylindrical, somewhat wider in the upper part, blue-green to dark green, to 15 cm high and 5 - 7.5 in diameter, with latex. A cream coloured 'snowy' tomentum is present on the top of the plant.
Tubercles: Tubercles firm, pyramidal with the lacteal juice, arranged spirally with 13-21 parastichys

Opuntia basilaris

In the wild, its principal range is limited to the Mojave-Colorado desert.
Succulent to 2 feet tall (60 cm), 4 feet spread (1.2 m); blue or slightly purplish

Flowers: The beaver tail cactus has 2.6-3 inches wide (6-7 cm), fuschia colored flowers in March-April. The spineless fruit is dry when ripe. The seeds are 0.24 to 0.4 inch in diameter (6-10 mm)
Fruits: The fruits can be cooked, as well as the pads.
