Product Description

Ariocarpus bravonaus cv GODZILLA is a rare cultivar of Ariocarpus bravoanus which is a species of cactus native to northeastern Mexico. This small, slow-growing cactus is part of the Ariocarpus genus, known for its unique and distinctive appearance. Here are some key characteristics and information about Ariocarpus bravoanus:

  1. Appearance: Ariocarpus bravoanus is a low-growing cactus with a flat, round to irregularly shaped stem that is often deeply fissured or furrowed. The stem is grayish-green or bluish-green and has a somewhat rough texture. It usually has small, tufted, and felt-like areoles from which the cactus's spines emerge.

  2. Flowers: When in bloom, Ariocarpus bravoanus produces attractive flowers. The flowers are typically pink or lavender and appear from the center of the plant. They are relatively large in proportion to the cactus's size.

  3. Habitat: This cactus is native to rocky and arid regions of northeastern Mexico, specifically in the states of Nuevo León and Tamaulipas. It is adapted to harsh desert conditions and can often be found growing in crevices or rocky terrain.

  4. Conservation Status: Ariocarpus bravoanus, like many cactus species, faces threats from habitat destruction and illegal collection. Some populations are considered threatened or endangered, and conservation efforts are in place to protect and preserve these plants in their natural habitats.

  5. Cultivation: Ariocarpus bravoanus is cultivated by cactus enthusiasts and collectors for its unique appearance and is grown as an ornamental plant. It requires well-draining soil, plenty of sunlight, and careful watering practices. Like most cacti, it is drought-tolerant and should be watered sparingly, allowing the soil to dry out between waterings. It is best suited for growing in containers or rock gardens.

  6. Legal Protection: In some regions, including parts of Mexico, cactus populations are protected by laws to prevent their removal from the wild and to conserve these slow-growing and unique plants.

Ariocarpus bravoanus is a fascinating and visually appealing cactus species known for its distinctive appearance and beautiful flowers. It is highly valued by cactus collectors and enthusiasts, but it's crucial to ensure that any specimens in cultivation are obtained through legal and ethical means to protect wild populations
