Re: Cintia? or not?

Unless the seller felt Cintia knizei is a Weingartia and further felt that Sulcorebutia, Cintia and Weingartia is a potato potato thing, this is not a Cintia. If you look away from epidermis colour and spines, you still have to account for the different flower, and if you disregard that you have to ...

The seeds came from Ludwig Bercht originally, and the plant is 7 years old. IMG_20210508_120339~2.jpg IMG_202105...

Re: Aylostera pygmaea

And there we have it......for decades the 'lumpers' and the 'splitters ' have never agreed on the taxonomy and naming of related variants and they never will, so let's just agree to disagree and accept cultivar names for the miriad of variants, so that we can all recognise the range of geographical...

Wow, very nice. All neat and well organised!

Re: Aylostera pygmaea

Probably not. I'm moving towards dropping the ssp. and var. of many forms and calling them species instead. I have done so with Turbinicarpus schmiedickeanus and it's 10 or so subspecies, and I'm going to do the same with Thelocephala. I am considering doing this with A. pygmaea too. In my experienc...

Re: Aylostera pygmaea

Very pretty! A. pygmaea really is a lovely species. I don't know if there's any other species of cactus with such a range of different flower colours across all it's forms.

Re: Sulcorebutias today

Lovely display. Mine are only in bud yet. That S. jolantana is really pretty and not one I have currently. Do you know if yours has any locality data?
