Gorgeous ... and I love the spines
Continuing a journey of discovery as I grow cactus seeds and offsets, and discover all kinds of wonderful plants in Cactus Nurseries. Just love Echinopsis, Lithops, Aeoniums and Gymnocalycium .... and....and .... now discovering Rebutia (thought I'd never bother having lost one a winter ago) and Sulcorebutia and Aylostera .... from where did those Echinocereus plants arrive?

Indeed, the hooked spines on mine have a very tiny barb - that is what keeps the spine caught under the skin and makes removal painful!

Don't care! I can cope with that if the plant is a true stunner.

I once got a Mammillaria bombycina caught on my wooly jumper. It was pre-digital camera days so we never got a photo. It took ages to get it off. :oops: The more you think you are getting there, the worse it gets.

Most of us have probably done something similar over the years.
