Hedgehog Fruit Growing Enormous
Echinocereus grandiflora hybrid
These large hedgehog cacti that get dozens, even hundreds of blooms, also get pollinated by our bees. The bees love them. And so we get fruit. And seeds.
If you let a hybrid get hybridized with other hybrids and go to seed, well then you don’t know what you’re going to get, now do you? That’s how I like it. That’s why we don’t attach cultivar names to our grandifloras, or a lot of our other hybridized cacti – hybridizing is so simply a natural process that the results really are just individuals. They vary! what a shock. It’s all good.
