Kaelkitty's Journal: JFC0633 Melocactus azureus ssp. ferreophilus (v. longispinus) ?

Initial Notes:

Acquired from Dad in October 1980 as Melocactus sp. 606. Planted in an 11 cm pot on returning home. This plant was grown by Dad from seed he purchased from Robert Field in 1977. There is only one field number which could be a possible match in an appropriate time-frame and that is HU606. This plant was originally named as M. ferreophilus var. longispinus and then later reduced to the rank of subspecies under M. azureus. Died in the mid 1980s.
