Ariocarpus Fissuratus Cactus
Ariocarpus fissuratus is a geophyte cactus that produces a star-shaped rosette of fleshy, deltoid to hemispheric tubercles, which have no spines and lie almost flat on the soil surface. They are usually solitary, rarely giving rise to side shoots from old areoles, they grow extremely slowly, to 20 cm in diameter.
Commonly called ”living rocks” these cacti usually blend in well with the terrain and limestone chips around them. Sought by collectors, they can take up to 50 years to reach their full growth of 15cm in diameter.
