Kaelkitty's Journal: JFC0565 Notocactus tabularis subsp. bommeljei

Initial Notes:

Added to my collection in 1980 as a young seedling in a 6cm square black plastic pot under the name Notocactus muricatus, an error of long standing where this plant is concerned. After considerable research on the subject, and considering the age of the plant, I am as sure as I can be that this name is now correct.

One home grown seedling was transferred to the main collection in a 6cm pot in 1980. A second plant of about the same size was purchased in June 1980 in a 6cm pot. I am not sure which plant is actually my survivor - the seedling or the purchased plant. Indeed I am not entirely sure whether the dead plant was even this plant or the true N. muricatus. In any case, this specimen has been flowering since the mid 1980s and new seedlings were started from its seeds in 2003.
