Product Description

Arrojadoa reflexa is a striking cactus native to Brazil, belonging to the family Cactaceae. It's known for its slender, columnar growth habit, forming clusters of bright green stems that can reach up to 2 meters in height. The stems are adorned with small but prominent ribs, from which emerge areoles bearing both radial and central spines. The most remarkable feature of this cactus is its flowers; Arrojadoa reflexa produces ring-shaped clusters of vibrant pink to red flowers around the top of the stems, creating a stunning visual display. The flowers bloom during the day and are known for their beauty and ability to attract pollinators.

Cultivation from Seeds:

  1. Seed Preparation: Seeds of Arrojadoa reflexa do not require any special treatment prior to sowing, but soaking them in lukewarm water for a few hours can help to soften the seed coat and encourage germination.

  2. Sowing: Plant the seeds in a well-draining cactus or succulent mix. Lightly cover the seeds with soil or simply press them into the surface, as they need light to germinate effectively.

  3. Germination Environment: Keep the seed tray in a warm, bright place, avoiding direct sunlight. A temperature range of 20-25°C (68-77°F) is ideal for germination. Covering the tray with a clear plastic lid or wrap can help maintain humidity.

  4. Watering: Water the seeds gently to keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Using a spray bottle for watering can prevent disturbing the seeds.

  5. Germination Time: Seeds should start to germinate within a few weeks, though some may take longer.

  6. Seedling Care: Once seedlings appear, gradually reduce humidity by removing the cover and introduce them to more light.

  7. Transplanting: When the seedlings are large enough to handle, carefully transplant them into individual pots filled with the same well-draining soil mix.

  8. Ongoing Care: Water sparingly, allowing the soil to dry out completely between waterings. Provide bright, indirect light and protect from extreme heat and frost.

Cultivating Arrojadoa reflexa from seeds is a rewarding experience for cactus enthusiasts, offering the opportunity to grow this beautiful and distinctive species from the very beginning.
