Ariocarpus trigonus


Ariocarpus trigonus is one of the largest species of the genus and is often found growing in colonies of considerable size. The tubercle size and form show considerable variation, from long and thin to short and broad, but the yellow flower is remarkably consistent given a habitat length of over 400km.The variation in tubercle sizes has resulted in the erection of several varietal names, these are of no botanical value, representing no more than minor phenotypic differences. Ariocarpus trigonus is an easy plant to grow and flower in a sandy-clay compost with plenty of coarse grit and limestone added.
