Product Description

Coryphantha or beehive cactus, is a genus of small to middle-sized, globose or columnar cacti. Coryphantha pseudoechinus ssp.laui have pale yellow flowers.

Coryphantha pseudoechinus ssp.laui






Coryphantha pseudoechinus ssp.laui is very similar to the standard Coryphantha echinus with the exception of yellow flowers and slightly different skin and spination colour.

It is closely related and similar to the genus Mammillaria. Among the most significant differences in cultivation, is that the flowers are produced on the tissue of the growing season, near the top, instead of coming from the previous season growth, forming a ring, like the Mammillaria. Another difference is that the Coryphantha tubercle has a groove on the upper side from its base to its apex

Yellow flowers bloom in late summer, followed by green fruits.


Coryphantha  prefers shady positions, beneath larger plants or partly covered by grass. It grows out in the open or under bushes. It also grows in pure gypsum and in gravelly soils.

It grows nearly in all substrates including nearly pure gypsum, gravelly soils, usually sandy alluvium or clay, especially in dry river lagoon areas, rarely crevices or steep slopes.

They generally develop a strong tap root, and should be given deeper pots than Mammillarias. 

Landscape Uses

This is a beautiful specimen cactus for a large cactus or succulent garden. It can make an interesting plant for a large container and is a nice centerpiece for a warm, sunny courtyard. The plant does have a few spines so care should be taken in its location.

The easiest to keep alive - Cactus thrive on neglect! Coming from desert climates cactus love sun! However beware of the Indian afternoon sun! Keeping them in extreme heat, especially behind a glass which magnifies the heat can cause the cactus to burn. If you notice the cactus turning brown or yellow on the side facing the sun, try giving it a cooler place to thrive in!

For watering cacti, the golden rule is to make sure the soil is completely dry before watering! This will stop the roots from rotting. It is advised to always use a pot with a drainage hole so that excess water can get drained out. If kept in a sunny area, you will need to water it once every week. If it is in a semi shaded or filtered light area, you might need to water it once in 2 weeks.

Cacti like soil that is well aerated and fast draining. You can fertilise the cactus in the summer months when it is in its growing season. During the winters it is best to cut back on any fertiliser and let the plant rest.
