Obregonia denegrii

(This plant comes in a 2.5 inch pot. You will receive a very similar plant to the one in the picture. It may or may not be blooming at the time of your purchase. The plant is shipped in its pot to prevent any damage to the roots).

Obregonia denegrii

Obregonia is among the most famous of all cacti for is unique artichoke-shaped stem. It is the only representative of its monospecific genus and is related to Ariocarpus. It grows almost always as a solitary plant levelled with the ground, with the sunk and woolly apex. It is considered an intermediate form between Ariocarpus and Lophophora.
Flower: The flowers grow between the wool of the apex, in the centre of the stem on young tubercles, they are funnel-shaped white diurnal, up to 2.5 cm in diameter, 2.5-3 cm long. External perianth segments greyish, pericarpel naked or with few scales. Filaments reddish purple or pink, anthers yellow, style white and stigma lobes white.
Blooming season: Summer.

This slow growing plant isn't always the easiest species to cultivate, but can enlarge relatively fast when well grown. It is often seen as a grafted plant but grows very well on its own roots too. Needs a very well drained mineral substratum with little organic matter (peat, humus). Requires light sun sun to develop good compact growth and waterings should be rather infrequent, to keep the plant flat shaped and not become excessively elongated and unnatural in appearance. Use Water sparingly from March till October and keep perfectly dry in winter, or when night temperatures remain below 10° C (but some people give this plant a light monthly watering to prevent the drying and shedding of the lower tubercles.) It is hardy to -4°C (or less) for a short period. In the rest period no high atmospheric humidity!! Ensure a good ventilation.

Great specimen

Cactus was very well packaged. It came in great condition and in a good plastic container. I repotted it for aesthetic purposes. I have made many purchases with Planet Desert and have never had a bad experience!

NO

Overall, I was mostly unsatisfied with my order. Quite disappointed that the plants in the 4" container were plants for 2" containers. First time I've purchased plants that are mini size in a 4" pot. Out of the 10 plants I purchased, only 3 plants were considered to be plants in a 4" pot. I honestly think that mini plants should not be labeled as 4" pot plants.
