Pyrrhocactus * Seticereus * Thelocactus * Trichocereus
All Cacti are CITES Restricted Plants
|The Cactus family is almost
entirely of the new world, with only one or two species
occurring in western Africa. Our plants are nursery grown
from seed either from field collections, from our own
hand-pollinated plants or seeds purchased from reputable
dealers. All cacti have beautiful flowers, so we try to
grow those that have a unique characteristic as well.
Features such as spinelessness (Ariocarpus spp.,
Astrophytum asterias, etc.), long spines (Ferocactus
rectispinus with arrow straight spines to 10 inches or
more) to the densely white spined species (Mammillaria
bocasana,, M. pectinifera,, Epithelantha micromeris) are
the types that we specialize in.
The cacti, unless otherwise noted, are sized for a 3 to 4 inch pot, the higher priced plants being the slower growers (e.g. Ariocarpus fissuratus are 6 years old).
Larger specimens of various species are available. Please inquire.
