Extra Info:
Sulcorebutia tiraquensis is one of the largest and most variable species within the genus Sulcorebutia. Even in the variety tiraquensis there are so many different forms that even spezialists sometimes get frustrated. The type-variety is located beside the road Chochabamba – Sta. Cruz at the northern edge of the highland area where the humid air from the lowlands is the basis of lush plant growth. Sulcorebutia tiraquensis benefits from this climate and even abstains from a taproot.
