skopjecollection said:moon cactus is usually a gymnocalycium mihanovichii. that being said, there are lots of cultivars, most of which grafted, and a lot of them needing to be permanently grafted to survive because of a lack of chlorophyll. However, no pictures of the moon cactus were posted, and there is a probability that it could be another plant , by mixing common names. So i concur, post a photo of the so called moon cactus.
This is a variant of said gymnocalcium, f rubra ,cv hibotan, purple form.Im trying to de graft , or make it grown on its own roots. The red forms, the orange, the yellow and the pink forms, cannot be degrafted, due to the lack of green matter/
skopjecollection said:If its grafted its hibotan. If its naturally grown its friedrichii.end of story. mine was grafted.
