Re: Small spots on tephrocactus geometricus

Agree with Mike nothing to worry about at the moment, just keep your eye on it and you can always remove that segment later if it gets any worse.

First Pterocactus

Nearly all of my Pterocactus have buds on, but seem reluctant to open.
But this one made the effort today.

Re: Big Gymnocalyciums

I have a G. sutterianum ( G. capillaense var. sutterianum ) that size, single head which draws down into the gravel in winter and only shows its full size after it has been watered twice .

Re: Copiapoa cinerea PM198

Beautiful plant Diane, you must keep it in full sun to get that patina ?

Re: Cactus falling over regularly

When some Mamms get to this age and size they do this a lot, then offset from the top side if left down.
You are right, if you plant it deep it will rot , better to put something for it to lean on may be a stick in the next pot or place two stones alongside the stem.

Re: Neoporteria sociabilis?

N. sociabilis looks nothing like that, the plant in the picture looks like it is from the taltalensis / paucicostatus group.But as Iann says it could be subgibbosa. ( Eriosyce/Neoporteria is a minefield)

Re: Dull, dull, dull

SB 236 does seem to be the most common collection number of E. coccineus but also the most variable.
I can't say I have seen AG 11 before.
