Re: Echinopsis Subdenudata

The decision with a plant looking this good, but only for a day, is what to do with it.

Re: Confusion identifying Cacti!

The thread on Mamm Haudeana a few days ago showed a whole mass of Mamms that had (in one person's opinion) been transferred to Cochemieas. I'd suggest we ignore it and it'll go away. Don't change labels.
