Re: Sunburn?

If you've got power in the greenhouse, keep a fan on permanently blowing air at ambient temperature.

Re: Definitely not yellow

Do they have perfume? Some of the large flowered echinopsis have a beautiful scent, others, including mine so far, are odourless.

I've had that happen too.

Probably too much water.

Re: Copiapoa hypogea

Names seem to be changing all the time in the cactus world. This was the plant I had recorded as C. montana flowering in 2015:

And this is my C. hypogaea flowering in July 2019.

Is it just me? That is certainly a pretty flower, but the spines are nothing like any Copiapoa hypogaea I’ve seen before.
I agree. C. hypogea spines are tiny, almost non-existent.
