Lobivia densispina ‘STERN VON HEMSBACH’

STERN VON HEMSBACH is a fantastic Lobivia densispina hybrid with bizarre looking freak-flowers. The flower mutation looks very much unlike the flowers of Lobivia densispina usually look like and I´ve been using it in a few crosses this season.

My large Lobivia Anemone mother plant pushed out lots of flowers in the 2019 season and this gorgeous flush came out early in the season. Lots of gorgeous cactus flowers with a black throat. Was able to pollinate various of them with stuff like Lobivia winteriana and cannot wait to see what comes from the seeds.

Various things are happening in this video. I can´t read my own writing, which happens way more often than I would like to admit. Also, I am pollinating this gorgeous Trichocereus hybrid that was grown from a cross between Flying Saucer x Dione. I am pollinating the flower and collect pollen for pollination of other cacti.

After the gorgeous Cactus Flower Parade in CACTUS JERK Episode 200, we were hit by a massive storm with thunder, lightning and floods.

This is the video when I came out into the greenhouse in the morning and found the mess that it had created. Needless to say, my beautiful Trichocereus arboricola wasn´t as beautiful anymore. LOL.

Video: S1 E86 How To Pollinate a Cactus Flower (Trichocereus / Echinopsis)

How to pollinate a cactus flower

In this video I pollinate a cactus flower, in particular the flower of a Trichocereus and collect pollen in the process. By pollinating your plants, you make sure that you get lots of seeds from your plants. Most Trichocereus species are self-sterile, which means that you need pollen from another plant to produce seeds.
