Cultivation and Mail Sale
of Cacti and Succulents.

 

 

Over the years, T. pseudopectinatus has been placed in six differnt genera, a process that will probably continue in the future.

Cultivation: This is a fairly easy species to cultivate. It needs a very well-drained soil. Strong sun to part sun is required, in order to develop good spinal growth.   Waterings should be rather infrequent, to keep the plant compact and not become excessively elongated and unnatural in appearance.  Keep dry in winter or when night temperatures remain below 10 C, it is hardy to -4C for a short period. Assure good ventilation.

Reproduction: From seed, since the plant rarely produces plantlets or grafted.
