Re: Is this Matucana haynei?

Could be, there is a lot of stuff lumped under that name. Ssp myriacantha looks a lot like that. A more typical and younger M. haynei might look this, coincidentally in flower today.

Re: How much longer?

Thanks for catching the wrong name. I'll fix the label. Not sure where the real T. llanensis has gone, maybe succumbed to the root mealie invasion a few years back. Still just a huge bud, but fingers crossed not long now.

Re: Confusion identifying Cacti!

Re: Something else unexpected

Oh yes, well below freezing. I start watering Pediocactus in particular when they are still getting hard freezes. Almost impossible to kill them in those conditions.

Re: Something else unexpected

That's good going, Diane! I don't remember sending you any plants, do you have a collection number with it? I don't think E. polycephalus are completely allergic to summer water, but they do seem to be restricted to a very short late spring growing period and pushing them at other times can be troub...

Re: Something else unexpected

Watering Pediocactus and Sclerocactus ss. in the summer is the easiest way to kill them, much more so than E. polycephalus. How about Echinomastus, by the way? Echinomastus not so much. They're just plain touchy at any time :lol: I have one E. unguispinus that seems fairly resilient but I've killed...
