Dear friends of cacti, thank you for visiting Little Gerardo´s nursery website. Welcome and enjoy the virtual visit to our online nursery and gallery! We hope you always find here something special and delightful for you..  

We love and enjoy the plants as you do - we just got even a little bit crazier :)  As most of you already know, we study, grow and propagate the taxons of top botanical quality and interest. All that demands a lot of care and time: besides running the nursery, sowing, grafting, etc. also long-life study, giving lectures, taking part in discussions, visiting collections & fairs and generally - a lot of travelling across Europe and beyond.

The news: L. Kunte, J. Šnicer: Genus Aztekium (2019)

After long years of studying habitats and gathering growing experiences, we gladly announce that a new publication on Aztekium (incl. English version) is in print now!

  • Morphology, evolutional biology, climatology, ecology, conservation, detailed growing instructions
  • A new description: Aztekium ritterii var. rotundum 
  • Many habitat photographs
  • The chapter on growing is based on skills, advice, and experiences of the top Czech growers.
  • The authors have studied all the Aztekium taxons in habitat for decades at more than 50 expeditions
  • The issue includes a practical traveller´s guide for lovers of these Mexican gems
  • The group of experts has been working for nearly 4 years on their contributions to this special issue
