Regular price $35.00 Sale price $25.00 Save $10.00

A great clone of this attractive, large growing Mexican species which was introduced by Ruby Ryde of Australia. A plant with relatively few leaves but leaves that are robust, thickly succulent and blush rusty-red to deep red in good light. The marginal spines are large and prominent, light colored and well spaced and leave their impression on leaves that they were bundled with as they emerged. The leaves are fairly glossy above and have a coating of white trichomes below. This is a large clone that can easily reach 30 inches across. The inflorescence is red and showy for a Hechtia!
