Thelocactus bicolor, 'Glory of Texas' + Rustic Glazed Pot

40.00

Named ‘Glory of Texas’ because of its brilliant pink flowers, thelocactus bicolor is an impressive but rare plant, found only in two small areas of Texas, though distribution is much more widespread over the border in Mexico. The majority of cactus species have distinct and rather short flowering seasons, usually less than a month per year. Thelocactus bicolor, Glory of Texas, is an exception. The three-inch wide brilliant pink-with-red-center flowers appear in response to watering, as often as every ten days or so throughout the hot season, May through September. Do not overwater and keep dry in winter.
