Even small plants flower profusely, and produce masses of seed.

Re: The wait is killing me....

They are both rather nice.
I have rather a love hate relationship with Epiphyllums but their sins are forgiven when in flower.

Turbinicarpus subterraneus

I bought several Turbinicarpus seedlings from Nick Gash around five years ago, the rest of the plants have been doing well growing and flowering in the way nice young Turbs do. This chap is obviously a little more difficult to gauge, so I thought it was time to investigate. IMG_4891.JPG Doing all ri...

Always a nice plant to see flowering, mine are still a little way off.

Re: Gymno horridispinum!

Nice old plant with super flowers that deserves a bit of love and to be let out from beneath its bench I would say.

Re: Big Gymnocalyciums

At shows I have seen a Gymnocalycium bodenbenderianum approaching that size, but I am not sure they grow this large as a general rule. They are so slow anyway! I am fairly sure I‘ve seen Gymno horstii reaching this size, they are certainly nice chunky plants with attractive white flowers. I thought...

Re: At least 50 years old and still in a small pot
