Sarcocaulon: Cultivation

Soil: sarcocaulon prefer loose, rich and very well drained soils; a mixture consisting of two parts of leaf mould, two parts of sand and two-three parts of pumice or lapillus stone with a coarse grain size may be used.

Multiplication: in spring it is possible to sow the seeds of the previous year, if desired it is also possible to practice cuttings, which, however, often tend to root in a poorly developed way, giving rise to small plants with little vigour.

Parasites and diseases: pay attention to root rot, which develops in soils that remain too long soaked in water.
