Re: Definitely not a Turbinicarpus

I think you're right Terry. Has a Trichocereus (or hybrid of) look about it to me depending on whether you think they are a distinct group or not!

Re: Biggish, best value, fastest growing, hardy in enclosed corner

What effect are you after? Maybe a hardy palm or cordyline might fit the bill for decent sized and not spiky? I also grow a few nice trees on big pots on my deck; Gingko, Aralia, Catalpa, Liriodendron and a few others. They work nicely as a kind of jumbo bonsai!

Re: Red flower?

Could it just be that the red flower is the result of recessive genes. These seeds may well have come from a red flowered plant, but the red genes have just not expressed themselves? Looking at the photos of 'red' plants I think this isn't a single gene locus kind of colour mutation - I reckon it w...
