Echino Cactus Grusonii


A friend of mine has a beautiful 21 year old Echino Cactus Grusonii and wants to know what this plant may be worth for it is a scarce and threatened specie.

Can anybody be of assistance please??

    In monetary terms?-like anything it depends what someone is willing to payimage

    What makes you think this is scarce? I can buy one now in the UK quite easilyimage

    endangered in the wild, common in cultivation. Perhaps you should propagate it and take the babies to Mexico

    Got a lovely one on my landing windowsill image  Bought it for a couple of pounds at Homebase  about 10 years ago.

    Gardening in Central Norfolk on improved gritty moraine over chalk ... free-draining.

  • can we have a photo of it.?

  • Almost indestructable. Mine is 30 years plus. Hardly ever watered.
