First ever bloom for Ferocactus.


Post by Stan »

My tries with others over the years only got me winter rotted plants. I hardly watered this one this year,even the weeds in the pot died from lack of water.
Not sure if this post peak bloom or pre peak bloom- I was just shocked to see this yesterday,

F. latispinus, a cool weather bloomer.
"American aloe plant," 1797, from Greek Agaue, proper name in mythology (mother of Pentheus), from agauos "noble," perhaps from agasthai "wonder at".
