G.Horstii ssp. Buenekeri in Flower

Post by cactuspip » Wed Jul 03, 2019 6:02 pm

I noticed this plant doing its stuff this morning so I thought I would share it online.

I find the salmon pink flowers of this subspecies particularly attractive.

Are the flowers coming from the side as well as the growing point?
Attempting to grow Echinopsis, Lithops, Aeoniums, Gymnocalycium, Rebutia, Sulcorebutia and Aylostera.
Just discovered Echinocereus.

Quite a beautiful display. I agree with you on the flower color.
