Cacti and succulents are the plants of wisdom and positivity. The mandala and secret geometry of the plants represent a microcosm of the Universe that all energies are transmuted!
All plants and seeds are from my home garden , grown with love and care!
You will receive 30+ seeds of the rare Gymnocalycium Baldianum cactus with red flower!!!. The plants you see at the photos are the mother plants from my garden and the pollination are 100% from bees. No man hand touch the flowers. Maybe gonna grow and some rare hybrid cactus in different type, shape and colors because all my cactus plants are together in my collection and are very very happy. :)
Gymnocalycium, commonly called chin cactus, is a genus of about 70 South American species of cactus. The genus name Gymnocalycium (from Greek, "naked calyx") refers to the flower buds bearing no hair or spines.
Their main area of distribution is Argentina,Uruguay, Paraguay, southern Bolivia and Brazil. Most species are rather small varying from 4 to 15 centimeters in size. In cultivation they are popular for their easy flowering habits, and the flowers are generally brightly coloured. Where temperatures fall below 10 °C (50 °F) they must be cultivated under glass with heat.
Light: Some Gymnocalyciums are shade-seeking in the wild, among shrubs or grasses, while others grow completely exposed. Some will therefore need a light shading from the sun in the hottest months, but to overdo this will result in loss of flowers.
Soil: The balance of the potting medium should be sufficient to allow good drainage, so that the plants do not sit in soggy soil for more than a day or two after watering.
Water: Watering in the summer months, while the plants are growing well can be frequent (weekly for small plants in small pots), but always allowing the compost nearly to dry out before rewatering. Watering in the winter months at all is unwise, and certainly not necessary.
Basic steps for successful seed germination:
1. Fill a container with good draining soil. We recommend 50% regular potting soil with 50% coarse sand, fine pumice or grit (1-3 mm). Remove any big chunks (peat) from the potting soil if needed. Divide the seeds on the soil.
2. Add a thin top layer of grit or coarse sand. If the seeds are extremely small then do not apply a top layer. Thick seeds usually germinate better after a 24 hour soak in water.
3. Let the container soak up water (from beneath) for 5 minutes.
4. Let excess water drip away.
5. Put the container with seeds in a zip-lock bag or other transparent bag or box. Make sure humidity is high.
6. Most seeds germinate under light conditions at circa 24 °C.
7. Increase ventilation when most seedlings have appeared. Germination can take 1-4 weeks depending on species.
8. Never let your seedlings dry out. Keep watering the container from beneath to prevent damage from splashing water. Apply good ventilation to prevent infections with mold.
