I am not a professional nor an expert in Cactacea taxonomy. Any help with ID and spelling are always welcome. To up-date my list I've been using many books, journals, catalogs and other web-sites. It's been helpful, but I have more work to do. I only ship to the main 48 States. We offer 72+ hour heat packs for $3.00 each. Please read the front page for ordering information.

Acanthocalycium glaucum - Sometimes found as Echinopsis glaucina.  It is a flat globular to shortly elongated solitary cactus, clumping with age. Body covered by a protective blue-grey layer of pruina. Yellow flowers in summer. ArgentinaGrowing in 4 1/2 inch pots. Sold Out

   Arrojadoa dinae - Come to me as Arrojadoa sp. Beateae (not a field # ? ACG-78). Arrojadoa dinae is a low succulent shrub with slender stems, up to 30 cm tall, the stems being covered with yellowish brown spines and greyish-white wool, and even more dense towards the apex where the pseudocephalium develops bicolored, brownish red to violet-pink blooms. Plants are shrubby, basally branching with subterranean tubers.Flowers are tubular, often bicolored, brownish red to violet-pink. Arrojadoa dinae, Arrojadoa multiflora, Arrojadoa eriocaulis and Arrojadoa beateae are a group of distinct but related species in Minas Gerais and Bahia. They are readily distinguished by their subterranean tubers, stems, wood anatomy, bi-colored flowers, and fruits. Most authors regard them as conspecific under the oldest name Arrojadoa dinae. However some studies in the field, show that it should be better to maintain these taxa as separate species. In some cases they even grow together (A. dinae, A. eriocaulis) without hybridization. Brazil. Growing in a 3 1/2 inch pot. Sold

     Discocactus ferricola - Discocactus ferricola is a small flattish globular cactus from Brazil and Bolivia that flowers on warm summer nights. At first plants are solitary and produces a small creamy-brown cephalium, a structure formed by trichomes (woolly hairs) from which emerge the tubular, white, sweetly scented flowers. Older specimen may eventually produce some offsets after making a cephalium. Discocactus ferricola belongs to the Discocactus heptacanthus- complex. It differs from Discocactus heptacanthus proper by the spiralling tuberculate ribs and the long spreading acicular spines. Growing in 4 1/2 inch pots. Sold Out

     Discocactus heptacanthus -Discocactus heptacanthus is a solitary flattened cactus that form a cephalium at maturity and blooms on warm summer nights. Its fragrant flowers are pollinated by moths. It is a very variable species which received several different controversial names, many of them are still used in the trade. Some authors still consider it a complex of several related species and subspecies while Taylor and Zappi (1991) accepts only three subspecies: subsp. heptacanthus, subsp. catingicola, and subsp. magnimammus. Flowers are nocturnal, fragrant, white or pale pink. Eastrern Bolivia, Paraguay, Brazil. Growing in 4 1/2 inch pots. -  Sold Out

     Discocactus zehntneri ssp. araneispinus -  Discocactus zehntneri subs. albispinus, more often known with its old name Discocactus albispinus, is a very singular cactus with a disk like, flattened to globose body, and one of the most attractive and easy to grow species of Discocactus. It looks very much like standard Discocactus zehntneri. They grow in the same area, but Discocactus albispinus is larger and has fewer spines than D. zehntneri, moreover the spines are longer, whiter and more recurved, also its shape is more flattened. It is a squat solitary plant that often in culture produces offsets. White, scented, slender, funnel-shaped , 2 to 9 cm long that open at night. The position of the stigma is at the top of the stamens. Each flowering lasts only one night, but that night it produces many nicely scented flowers. Southern Brazil.

Thelocactus hexaedrophorus - This is a larger plant from an old collection. It's a solitary and quite variable cactus with flattened stems.
