Re: When to prune Pterocactus

You should prune your P. tuberosus in autumn.
Now it is too late to get new segments that can flower.

Re: Pterocactus nequensis

It is the decision of those who describe the plant.

Re: CITES and cactus seeds: question Solved

As a European I won't give any comment on the British decision BREXIT. As a cactus entusiast and active member of Tephrocactus study group I think it is neccessary to give some comments about CITES and the future.
