Re: Unwelcome visitor

I caught 7 in the cactus house last month :eek:

They nibbled the Rebutia rauschii and the Echinopsis :cry:

They took all the buds off the Gymnocalicium so I baited the traps with the ones they left. Caught them when they came back for them 🔨

Rebutia

Wonder if anyone would be so good as to help with this one? We recently bought a Rebutia that was apparently from a late member's collection that was being sold off by a relative. It was sold to us as a "Rebutia mitioa" but we've drawn a blank on that one, any ideas good people? :smile: DSC03564.JPG

Hopefully, there'll be a cactus mart at Herne Bay just up the road from you next April if all's OK by then.
