Amazing cacti Hana, there's so much detail in these little cacti. I often like them so much more then the giant cacti because of this.

Jermilae is 13 cm diameter.
Hintonii is 10 cm diameter.

Hintonii is a small plant but the photo one has grown to a large size because of grafted.
I have quite many seedlings, sown seed in 2006. They have grown very solwly and been very small.

Since one each plant only was in flower today. I have preserved pollen for the pollination in future.

Another Ariocarpus, fissuratus f Big Bend was in flower yesterday.
I bought seeds and sowed on 31/10/2003.
Young seedlings were grafted on Hylocereus stocks just after germination.
This cactus was degrafted 2007.
Since it was difficult a normal degrafting for fissuratus, I degrafted with a short vascular bandle of the Hylocereus.
I believe this one relies on own roots currently.

I sowed Ariocarpus seeds firstly in 2003.
This retusus is one of them.
I grafted young seedlings on Hylocereus and degrafted later.
This 19 cm diameter retusus was in flower yesterday.
One of grafted retusus will be in flower today and I will do pollination with it.

Hi Hanazono,

is the A. retusus pictured above on it's own roots now? Or is it still grafted? It's very impressive, either way.

Can I ask at what age you degrafted it? Looks very healthy indeed. Quite large too!

trigonus II

I degrafted in 2005. This means 2 years old.
It was a good size of plant even though just 2 years old becuse of grafted.
The photo is rooting process of the retusus.
The rooting medium was cat litter

Ariocarpus retusus v major cv mitsuibo(tri-fingers) was in flower yesterday.
I sowed seeds on 11/08/2005 and grafted young seedlings just after germination.
Unfortunately I have not seen the character of the tri-fingers yet. I may not be able to see never.

I think more asterias will be in flower in this afternoon.
I could see many flowering buds in this morning.
4 grafted Discocactus horstii were in flower in this morning. Scent of flowers was very nice.

I took the photo in this morning.
This is one of K Sato dainow kabutos. I do not know the reason but it has grown very quickly. The current diameter is around 18 cm and I assume growing more. This one is own-rooted and 9 years old.
Almost all current kabutos are dwarf size because there was so many crossing in history. I will use this one as a father plant and try to regain the size.

Interesting flower on this last one. Looks to be quite small with not too much red down in the throat.

Really nice flecks and rib formation too. Those Japanese CVs are very attractive indeed.

Ariocarpus flowering has been returned.

1st flowering of a fissuratus seedling
I collected seeds from my plants and sowed on 30/09/2006.
It took 5 and a half years from seed to flower.
