Echinocereus that thinks its a Mammillaria

Ring of flowers, anyone? This is "Echinocereus montanus", a somewhat dubious name but a prolifically flowering form. montanus-0419.jpg E. davisii is a more conventional flowers-wherever form. davisii-0419.jpg This is a real Mammillaria for comparison, nice ring coming but small spineless f...

The differnce I found is one is Lithops schwantesii v. marthae and the other Lithops schwantesii ssp. schwantesii v. marthae. Am I missing something? :???: Lith...

My Copiapoas always get a little shade at this time of year, maybe even shuffled back and forth for duller days. I go for lots of ventilation with Conophytums and Lithops, including a fan.

The pricing is very strange, with some very ordinary tiny plants costing more than some quite large and desirable ones. Nothing that expensive though. Just for once all the flowe...
