Ferocactus latispinus 28,000 seeds   
This is one season's yield of seeds from one of my plants. Just an illustration of how much Nature strives to maintain its populations of life. One plant, one year, 28,000 seeds. Potentially 28,000 plants. Chances of even one plant out of these seeds getting to reproductive size? Vanishingly small.   (08/40)
