Parodia sanguiniflora

(This plant comes in a 3.5 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).

Parodia sanguiniflora

Description: Usually solitary globose or cylindrical, up to 18 cm tall, 9 cm wide.

Habit: Usually solitary globose or cylindrical, up to 18 cm tall, 9 cm wide.

Flowers: Blood red diameter 2,5-4cm. Filaments of the stamens carmine to brownish-cinnabar. Stylus reddish to pale yellowish; Stigma light-yellow to nearly white.

Cultivation and Propagation: It is relatively easy to grow on its own roots and quite resistant to cultivation. The only things that can kill this plant are cold and overwatering.

Soil: Use an open and free draining mineral compost with little organic matter (peat, humus) that allows therefore roots to breath (as it is rot prone). Outdoors a well-draining rocky or sandy soil is ideal.

Pots: It needs a relatively shallow pot to accommodate its fibrous roots and provide a very good drainage. It may stay in the same pot for many years.

Watering: Needs regular water in summer. Keep rather dry in winter, tends to lose its roots in winter.

Hardiness: Keep dry at 5- 10° C in winter but can tolerate sporadic light frost if kept on the dry side prior to, and during, cold weather.

Exposition: The plant tolerates very bright situations, if kept too dark they may become overly lush and greener and could be prone to rotting due to over watering.

Propagation: By seeds

Great Gift!

Quick and efficient shipping! I got this as a mother’s day gift. It actually started blooming about a week later and it’s quite beautiful. Thank you!
