TEESSIDE BRANCH PHOTO GALLERY
Ariocarpus (or Neogomesia) agavoides come from Mexico.
Their elongated tubercles can be mistaken by the less experienced for Leuchtenbergias,
though they are actually quite distinct. The woolly tufts are pleasing
to the eye, and once flowering size is reached (flowering plants
can be quite small, but they are so slow they still need to be several
years old) these showy purple-pink flowers can be expected. Seedlings are
often grafted to speed up their development and to help ensure their survival.
