Lost label - id please?

Post by ragamala » Sat Aug 15, 2020 10:06 am

I find I have lost the label for this plant and I can't identify it from my seed purchase records. Any help appreciated.

BTW it is in a 3 inch pot if that helps with size.

It's Maihueniopsis mandragora, which is perhaps no more than a form of M. minuta.

Many thanks, both. This makes sense now. I had seed of "Tephrocactus mandragora" from Koehres in 2017 and according to my germination records had no result. But it must have been these were late developers - I have 4 of these now.
