Re: Chamaecereus

Another C. saltensis that didn't want to flower on Sunday was this one, 'zapallarensis' TB382.1.
It has more spines, shorter spines and they sit flatter against the plant, so far.
Like quite a number of my plants it's in a special rhombus-shaped pot.

Re: Chamaecereus

Regretably, Herzog's plant, like the original version, is of somewhat obscure origin: it was collected for him rather than directly by him. Eberhard Scholz found a plant that looks like the common form growing in a cemetery but on crossing different clones from there produced thicker stemmed plants,...

By popular demand, I've moved posts discussing another matter from here to a new thread in the Society Discussion section. My apologies if I've moved one I shouldn't've.

the Sarnes duo state that seeds germinate relatively easily.
Yes, I managed to germinate some SAR 8283 seed from them last year, though I killed it/them off over last winter.

Re: Chamaecereus

Long regarded as a close relative of C. silvestrii is C. saltensis (aka Lobivia saltensis and Echinopsis saltensis ssp saltensis). Here are ZJ 213 (two pics), MU351 'multicostata' (Rausch's first description, as L. saltensis v. multicostata claims the plant "Differt a typo costis plurioribus"... wel...

Re: Chamaecereus

I shared a photo of the flower of my Chamaecereus silvestrii f. crassicaulis cristata last month. Here it is again, with a more regular flower, next to the normal form. The flowers are consistently bigger. P6090240.jpg The stems are fairly thick to begin with but then become fasciated over time, if ...

Chamaecereus

I've been having a bit of a Chamaecereus day today, prompted by some coincident flowers. So often overlooked, my C. silvestrii has been receiving good treatment for a few years now, in an over-sized pot. It has managed to grow through all the mite-bitten bits and is keeping a reasonably tight shape....

Re: puna clavaroides

Here's my less-than-magnificent specimen of Maihueniopsis clavarioides, obtained as cutting in 2007, now in a 3" pot. :???:

Thankfully, I have a second plant that's looking a little better!

I thought in habitat these were naturally deciduous depending on conditions where the plant shrunk down or severed some of the top growth and the tuberous part hibernated then grew new 'heads' when conditions were right?
Plants in cultivation, especially grafted specimens, don't behave like this.

Re: Another ID please

It will have come as Rebutia flavistyla (probably no more than a very distinctive form of Aylostera fiebrigii).
