Product Description

Brasilicactus haselbergii is a small, globular cactus native to the highlands of Brazil. It is characterized by its compact, spherical shape and an arrangement of spines that can vary from sparse to densely packed, depending on the specimen. The spines typically range in color from white to yellowish. This cactus is known for its pink to reddish flowers that bloom near the crown of the plant and can be quite showy against the green of the cactus body.

Cultivation from Seeds:

  1. Seed Collection: If you have access to the plant, collect the seeds from the fruit once it dries on the plant. Ensure the seeds are clean and dry before storing or sowing.

  2. Sowing: Brasilicactus haselbergii seeds should be sown in a sandy, well-draining soil mix. You can sprinkle the seeds on the surface of the soil and gently press them in without completely burying them, as light aids germination.

  3. Germination Environment: Keep the planted seeds in a warm place with plenty of indirect light. A temperature range of 20-25°C (68-77°F) is ideal. The use of a clear plastic cover or a glass pane can help retain moisture and warmth, which is essential for germination.

  4. Watering: Water lightly, using a fine mist to keep the soil moist but not waterlogged. Too much water can cause the seeds to rot, so it’s important to have a balance.

  5. Germination Time: Seeds can take anywhere from a few weeks to several months to germinate, so patience is required.

  6. Seedling Care: Once the seedlings appear, gradually decrease the humidity by removing the cover for longer periods each day. Protect the young cacti from direct sunlight, which can be too intense and cause scorching.

  7. Transplanting: When seedlings are big enough to handle, transplant them into individual pots with the same well-draining cactus mix. Ensure the pots have good drainage holes.

  8. Ongoing Care: Water sparingly, only when the soil is completely dry. During the growing season, a diluted cactus fertilizer can be applied. Brasilicactus haselbergii does not tolerate cold temperatures well, so they should be kept in a warm environment, especially during winter.

With the right care, Brasilicactus haselbergii can thrive and eventually produce its vibrant flowers, adding a touch of Brazil's natural beauty to your cactus collection.
