SANTA FE, N.M. — High Country Gardens’ research and development greenhouses are currently providing lodging for some very strange visitors from afar, if Chief Horticulturist David Salman’s claim that the unidentified cactus species he recently unearthed from an uncharted meteor crater near Roswell, N.M. can be substantiated.  
   “I can’t say for sure, but given that it seems to be associated with the meteor, it probably came from outside our solar system,” Salman says in a recent video interview released this morning on High Country Gardens’ YouTube channel. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZsITKPvhtYk
   Salman says he was on a routine seed-collecting mission west of Roswell — the undisputed locus of extraterrestrial preoccupation since the late 1970s, when the alleged UFO crash of July 8, 1947 was brought to the world’s attention — when he was drawn to the unmapped meteor crater by a “faint glow.” Closer inspection revealed the light coming from a colony of small cacti yet unfamiliar to Salman, a renowned botanist with some three decades devoted to the horticultural industry.
   “Really what, at this point, I’m most interested in is trying to reach out to other botanists or field plant explorers to see if they’ve come across similar populations elsewhere on the planet, because it’s very possible that this meteor that hit near Roswell, perhaps it broke up in the atmosphere and other pieces maybe crashed in South America or Africa or Eurasia,” he says.
   An expert on cacti, Salman, who’s been carefully observing the exotic species for a year now, still knows very little about them, a fact which further corroborates their otherworldly nature.
   “It’s very interesting to realize that they somehow resemble things here on Earth, but yet I’m not sure if  they derive nutrients from the soil. Are they carnivorous, do they eat insects or, exactly how do they get energy to metabolize?” he says. “But as I’ve been observing them there seems to be some parallel evolution between whatever this — what I suspect is an extraterrestrial source of these creatures — but yet they seem to resemble in some way cacti that are found here in the southwestern United States.”
   Salman wonders how the new species will be classified scientifically. “Since plant taxonomy is very much related to both DNA and physical characteristics, I’ve just kind of given it a temporary name of Ariocarpus, because it resembles a similar plant here on Earth,” he says of the genus designation for cacti, which are endemic solely to North and South America. “And the species would be [extraterrestrialensis].”
