My normal cure for anything like this is the bin and I think that this is the sensible course of action this time as well.
Does not sound like a plant person is speaking here, just someone with a collection looking for 'things' in mint condition only... This is a quite sad, actually.

Re: Flowers!

thanks .... a trip to the GH through the hail/rain/etc reveals a few more buds this afternoon. BUT The weather of the past few days has not allowed the excess moisture in the trays (not water just moisture) to evaporate, and together with an RH of a very high value, and now very cold weather, means...

Re: Thelocactus hexaedrophorus

It probably depends how fast you can grow them. My ten year old ones are still the size of 3 centimeters and probably far from flowering. So I would advice not to 'grow them hard' like I do with all my plants. I am not much of a repotter and don't water with additional feeding... A lovely plant by C...

But maybe all species are evenly hardy, or my plant just got lucky this one winter and might not surviv...

Re: Some May flowers

May I ask what's hiding underground behind that Pelecyphora and in what substrate the Astrophytums are? Seems very sandy, at least on top. That's a Lophophora hiding under the soil. The Astrophytum asterias are in a very minaral mix of loam, grit / pebbles and rough sand, as most of my plants. They...

Re: Some May flowers

If you don't mind me adding some May flowers: Turbinicarpus pseudopectinatus sown in 2015 and flowering for the first time, although most are clearly something different as only two of them are T. pseudopectinatus. I would still think a Turbinicarpus, but unsure what species. Anyone can guess what s...

I even considered joining SABG just to find one, but I didn't see them on the last year's swap list and figured out it'll be a stretch. The hunt continues!
The list changes year to year. It all depends on what has been donated that year by members.
