Acanthocalycium peitscherianum

Acanthocalycium peitscherianum

Acanthocalycium peitscherianum is less often seen than its relative A. violaceum. Nevertheless, although fairly slow, they are easy to cultivate and their pink or white flowers make them worth growing. The plant pictured was seed raised from BCSS seed. Acanthocalyciums are found in Northern Argentina.
