This melocactus was dehydrated when i got it i repotted it without disturbing the roots and put it on my heat mat with the next one in late nov kept water up when weather was warm it responded by taking up water and expanding like the next one.

Thanks for the pics, great Melocactus. It looks like the Melocactus peruvianus cephalium is sprinkled with its own seed ...

I'm in the same boat with my Melo Peru it produces way too many seeds Smile Nice plants btw.

I was looking at my Melo the other day and found a heap of seedling growing of their own accord near the base Smile I never planted them they just fell there.

krainzianus for Hans Krainz(1906-1980)swiss horticulturist, 1931-1971 director of the municipal succulent plant collection zurich. Reference etymological dictionary of succulent plant names.There is also turbinicarpus krainzianus.

Are there any tricks to raising Copiapoa seed? I've never tried them before but have just received 'Copiapos cinerea 'Brown Spines' and C. malletiana seeds to try... never tried even growing Copiapoa before.

Extra drainage less than normal water for copiapoa. And tasv ill get back to you later tonight about mamm seeds have a few you will like.

Some very nice plants there Cactuscook !

No tricks needed for Copiapoa seed TasV. Viability is usually pretty good, but fresh seed is best. Treat them the same as your other Cactus seed with warmth and humidity. They are usually very quick to come up too.
C. malletiana is usually known as C. dealbata these days...but I guess that depends on whose naming system you want to use !

I bought it as dealbata... Desert Tropicals lists dealbata as a synonym of malletiana (see: http://desert-tropicals.com/Plants/Cactaceae/Copiapoa_malletiana.html)... so hard to keep up with the taxonomic nomenclature boffins or even to know which one is which Rolling Eyes

Edit: it's also refered to as malletiana on the ICON allowable imports list too: http://www.aqis.gov.au/icon32/asp/ex_casecontent.asp?intNodeId=8434932&intCommodityId=566&Types=none&WhichQuery=Go+to+full+text&intSearch=1&LogSessionID=0

CactusCook, yes Copiapoa krainziana is a very cool plant and pretty distinct amongst the Copiapoas. Maybe someday your plant will be like this ! Might be something like 70 years or so from now though....

The noto would be about ten years if you put them in the ground when about the size of two tennis balls they will grow quiet fast i have heaps of these and put little ones in the garden everywere they are a nice looking plant i think.
