Ariocarpus Species Mix

Ariocarpus is a small genus of Mexican rock cactus and have curious rock-like forms and textures, and blend very well with the soil and rocks in their native habitat. They have no spines and with the rock-like texture has the effect of reflecting the heat of the sun to give them some insulation in summer. 

They are all endangered and protected in their habitats.

The plant is semi buried with a thick central root.

The aerial part is flattened with a diameter of 6–12 cm, triangular tubercules overlapping with transverse wrinkles. The plant is totally without thorn and of gray color. It is easily hiding in its environment.

The plant apex contains a woolly structure from which emerge big pink or yellow flowers, but only after several years.

The plant contains bitter and toxic alkaloids such as hordenine. These protect the plant against consumption by herbivores.



Care of Ariocarpus

Ariocarpus species have a tuberous root system and are quite sensitive to soil conditions, preferring sharply draining loam based soils with minimal humus. Care should be taken to avoid over-watering, allowing the soil to dry out completely between watering. 

Plants require water only during periods of summer growth and should be kept perfectly dry overwinter, with a minimum temperature of 12 °C, although certain species can cope with considerably cooler conditions.
