Parodia

 

At the end of the 80's the IOS (International organization for succulent plant studies) worked on a reorganization of the genera of the Cactus family. A by-product of this was the inclusion of Notocactus in the genus Parodia. There is still a lot of opposition to this move, but here we will go with it and include all the Notocactus species in our list of Parodia. As defined here, there are about 50 species of Parodias that can go from small globose plants, to 3 feet tall columnar cactus (1 m). They are native from South America, in Argentina, Uruguay, Paraguay, and Brazil. The genus name honors the Argentine biologist Lorenzo Raimundo Parodi.

The cacti that where in the genus Parodia before the merge, do generally better in winter if kept above 50F (10C). This allows them not to go completely dormant. When going totally dormant they have a much higher probability to lose their roots, and can be pretty slow to restart in the spring. Some species on the other hand, particularly some in the old genus Notocactus, are fairly cold resistant, and can be used in outdoor cactus gardens.

Most seedlings bloom in 2 to 3 years after germination. Parodia have abundant blossoms of large flowers.
