Description: A. myriostigma cv. LOTUSLAND is a strikingly weird but pretty, old cultivar with dense white flecks that cover bumpy stems (made of grooved ribs and distinct odd tubercles ) that resemble pine cones, eventually forms small 5 ribbed stems with numerous offsets all over the body. The flower are numerous yellow, very small and sterile (Perhaps it is able to cross-pollinate with A. coahuilense).

 

Cultivation: Although regarded as a choice and difficult plant in cultivation it is relatively easy to grow. It is usually seen as a grafted plant but can be rooted and it very well on its own roots too. Use mineral well permeable substratum with little organic matter (peat, humus). Water sparingly from March till October and keep perfectly dry in winter at temperatures from 5 to 15 degrees centigrade. (but it is Hardy to -7°C for short periods) In the rest period no high atmospheric humidity!! Sun Exposure: Light shade to full sun.
 

Propagation: Plantsare often  grafted to accelerate growth. It can also propagated by cuttings from spring to summer (It branchs enthusiastically, and offsets are readily available)  If you remove an offset, remember to let it dry for a week or so, letting the wound heal (cuttings planted too soon easily rot before they can grow roots).
