Hechtia that will self pollinate

hotdiggetydamJuly 20, 2011

I read some where that there is a hechtia that doesn't need a male and female flower to set seed. Does anyone have info on this topic?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Hechtia gayorum. Originally named H. gayii, but as it was discovered by a husband/wife team it was corrected to the plural form. At first it was thought to be a H. montana (the only other Hechtia found in Baja California Sur) but it is smaller and 'cuter' and happens to have perfect flowers. I have yet to see it in habitat, but apparently it is found at the very southern tip of Baja.
