Propagated Coryphantha Seeds

These small globular cacti grow in the Southwestern United States and Mexico, and are fairly common in propagation. Most species are globular, and some grow as elongated globular forms and a few species grow in clusters. They are distinct for having a groove running along the tops of their tubercles like Escobaria, but generally their tubercles are fatter in size. They also resemble Mammillaria, but produce flowers on first year spring growth rather than second year growth. The flowers are usually large bright yellow cones, but a few species can be in the pink through red color tones. They are fairly easy to keep as windowsill plants but have large root systems, and may need oversized flower pots.
