Picked up one of these recently (another Bolivian cactus, looks like there is a pattern emerging Cool), just wondering about the cultivation as I have never grown them before. I know the basics, beet-like roots, no overwatering, free draining mix, doesn't like a hot greenhouse in the middle of summer, full sun, cool winters. Anything else I need to know about the cultivation of this attractive little cactus?

Can't wait to see the flowers.

Pics soon.

Thanks.

Yeh thats about it trig, just watch out for overwatering. Keep it in a spot where it will cop the cold for winter for better flowering in the warmer seasons.

Cheers PD. It gets pretty cold here in winter so should be all good.

Do you cultivate any species from this genus? The S. augustinii seems to have many pups & is growing lots more smaller ones already. Can you use the pups as cuttings, or is it seed propagated only scratch

S. rauschii is on the must have list for sure but atm i am struggling to find space for anything at all. Once the new shadehouse is up it will make things a lil easier Surprised

Propagation via pups shouldnt be a problem.

Hi there,
I have a S Rauchii, growing on a graft and its really doing well. Plucked a couple of pups from it a couple of months ago - last time I had a look one had rooted, but might be keen to swap both.

PD - keen to let you have one if you like...

Trigonus - what about a swap for your variety. Maybe another thread or conversation.

PM me perhaps if either is interested. - one for another version of the Sulcrorebutia (S. augustinii) or something.

Will give it a go PD. It certainly pups prolifically, so i don't stand to lose much if it doesn't succeed. I too was after S. augustinii and it looks like we both found one.



Thanks Calycium. Definitely keen to grab an S.rauschii pup. will be keen to swap a S. augustinii pup. What is your main plant grafted onto? Will PM you abou the trade shortly, much appreciated.

Not sure what it is grafted on - sadly paid a small fortune for it on ebay last year. The guy said it was a below ground graft. Whatever it is, it is quite prolific. Depending on how happy tou are with size, will be happy to swap - certainly don't want to send something too small to be fair. See if I can take a photo of the pups tomorrow after work - but have added my S Rauchii photo from last year.

photo of it added to album... see how I go at linking to it from here.

Sulcorebutia augustinii Sulcor10

cheers
