  Notocactus glaucinus var. depressus
(Syn: Parodia glaucina)
CACTUSPEDIA       

 


Notocactus glaucinus var. depressus HU61a South of Quevedos, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil
Nearly spineless species, with only short spines.

 

Cultivation: They like a warm bright location, does great in partial shade avoid full sun. During winter's rest period they should be dry and cool. It is best to avoid any frost but during the winter the temperature can be as low as 2 C without any harm so long as the compost is very dry, they like only a short winter's rest. If the soil is allowed to be dry for too long root loss could follow but equally the same result would occur if the plants are both wet and cold. Cold spots can mar its epidermis  in cold damp conditions. They need good drainage and prefer a neutral to slightly acidic compost with plenty of extra grit. Water and feed during the summer. Best if watered with rain water and given an occasional tonic of sequestrated iron.

Propagation:  Usually by seeds as it seldom produces offsets.
