Kaelkitty's Journal: JFC0536 Haageocereus decumbens (v. subtilispinus)

Initial Notes:

Acquired in a 9cm pot in 1980 under the name Haageocereus decumbens var. subtilispinus. One school of thought is that H. subtilispinus is a species in its own right, while others submerge it completely into H. decumbens. Arrgh! I have checked Ritters collection numbers - FR582 was the type collection for H. subtilispinus while various plants of H. decumberns were collected as FR187a, FR 187b and FR1024. Died in June 1980.
