Ariocarpus sp. marmolejos?
« on: Saturday, 18 February 2012 - 20:47:40 »
Hi all,
I have had this plant in my collection named "Ariocarpus sp. marmolejos"... Does anyone know anything about this species? Is the name valid?
I bought it from Köhres 7 years ago.

Hello Dan!
Beautiful plant! has own root?
Marmolejos is the location and usually there are many Ariocarpus confusus in this area.
Your plant looks very much like a confusus.
If the flower is magenta is definitely a confusus.

Thank you for the information! You are right, it looks alot like a confusus. The flowers are pink.
The plant is grafted on a short harrisia jusbertii stock.

I use large trichocereus peruvianus / pachanoi for such large scions... You can also use large echinopsis for stock. Usually it is no problem to graft such large scions, but they can take a little longer to grow together.
Good luck (:
