Notocactus in Aquaculture Page 2

A Notocactus leninghausii specimen. This was one of three plants I bought which came in a single 2" pot.

Notocactus leninghausii grow well in aquaculture but they tend to topple over as they grow taller. They are also a bit more susceptible to spider mite damage than Notocactus magnificus, which is tougher.


Notocactus magnificus

Notocactus magnificus is a lovely species to grow in aquaculture. When it gets going, it can grow very fast. The juvenile picture of this specimen is in the main Notocactus Specimens Page.

This is the original Notocactus magnificus plant which had its head lopped off. The cut healed and the plant survived. I keep it to produce offsets. This is a relatively trouble-free species, so I plan to keep a few of them.

This is the end product, about 16 months after the plant was first bought. The original specimen was in a 2" pot. The end product is over 5" in height. The skin is spotless and the areoles are clean, a prime specimen.

Check out specimens of Notocactus vanvletii on the next page: Notocactus Aquaculture Page 3.
