Parodia mix - 20 seeds
Species currently and historically included in the genus Parodia are very popular in cultivation. Many of them are easy to grow, have intriguing stems and spines, and flower easily with brightly-colored flowers. This, combined with their relatively small size, ensures that nearly all cactus growers will have some representative of this group. Advanced hobbyists may grow many of the various species and subspecies.
By default on this site, genera such as Notocactus and Eriocactus are included under Parodia. For some reason, the treatment of this particular genus is a highly emotional issue for many growers. It seems they would rather die than to ever refer to a Notocactus by the name Parodia.
