New member in Gloucestershire

Postby Nicevans » Fri May 11, 2018 7:42 pm

Hi,
I have recently become interested in collecting all sorts of cacti, and have about 50 plants so far..... including Mammallaria, Gymnocalycium, Echinopsis, Rebutia, it’s a very addictive pastime and I will run out of space soon!
I bought a Gymnocalycium many years ago from a garden centre labelled Damsqii but I am not sure if this is correct.
Can anyone help, photo attached?
Nicola

Welcome to the forum. I'm not sure about the ID of your plant. It looks like a gymnocalycium but doesn't really look much like damsii. Could be a hybrid.

Welcome to the Forum Nicola, most people here would agree that we have a very little addictive hobby! I agree with you Rod about your plant, it doesn't really look like damsii, which I have grown for quite some years. Enjoy your plants.
