Thanks both for the name info, and yes Tony these Tunilla are worth their space when they flower

Re: Opuntia id

Thanks for the names and info folks, much appreciated.

So hoping to take advantage of your collective knowledge, you might be able to confirm these three are also Tunilla sp. The last one came as Opuntia perdita?

Re: Echinocereus rigidissimus ssp. rubrispinus

Well taken photos Diane.
A good year for Echinocereus flowers, or is it just me?
My dasyacanthus went for best bloom today in the blistering morning heat.

Opuntia id

Out of respect for opuntia spines I photographed this small-padded one in situ. First time flowering from a 'bag of pads', and a name would be nice, please. I don't know the name of the broad-spined opuntia on the right either. (tu)

Re: Those fuzzy balls

Yes, I have seen these but can only recall them being associated with roots of some species.
Casual observation only, no ID.

Eriosyce chilensis v. albidiflora

Given DaveW's nice travelogue of his Chile2015 trip, here is my E. chilensis v. albidiflora that coincidentally was in flower today.

Re: Thelocactus Heterochromus

Oh well, not to be.
I will just have to wait for the genuine article to flower - maybe next year....

Re: Thelocactus Heterochromus

Does Thelocactus flavidispinus fit this thread? The flower is a match and the spines hetero-ish..... :wink:
