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.

Your plant looks like it maybe fairly young? So spination might not be fully formed yet. In modern nomenclature, many of the forms c...

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...

Re: Happy 9th birthday

Yes, it looks a good size for three years. Plus the fruit takes a good while to develop so must have flowered even younger than that.
