Leuchtenbergia Cactus
L. principis is a lonely and slow growing plant. Due to its long roots it usually colonizes the habitat in which grows and does not allow other plants to develop. At the base of the roots, the plant develops a rosette that bears tubercles. Tubercles are long, stiff and triangular in section, and this is why the plant is called Agave Cactus, because it is similar to the American Agave. Tubercles are 6-15 cm long and at the apex of them, you can find from 1 to 3 big papery spines, up to 10 cm long. 5-year-old plants bloom during the warm months of autumn and spring. At the tip of the tubercles, yellow large funnel-shaped flowers arise; flowers bear small green smooth fruits that release seeds when ripe.
