Glandulicactus uncinatus or whatever it is now. Why the Glandulicactus nomen kicking around?



Linda kept this little fella/gal alive and well now through 2 super freeze winters and a summer from Gehenna.

These plants are used to hostile climate, like this Glandulicactus uncinatus ssp. wrightii

But what faded flower colo(u)r has Linda's plant compared to my Glandulicactus uncinatus ssp. uncinatus grown from seeds collected near Las Tablas!

BTW calling these plants Ancistrocactus instead is nonsense, because their fruit is full of scales, their petals are much thicker and the seeds are much smaller than those of Ancistrocactus. And furthermore Ted Anderson in his 'Cactus-Family' lumped Glandulicactus and even Ancistrocactus under Sclerocactus ! :shock:

That's a lovely plant, Linda! Mine is about to open its flowers, too.

J├╝rgen - Where do these grow in habitat?
