Re: deciphering an old label

I think it's KK1816, Paul. The last digit would be too small as a '0', but could easily be the bottom part of a '6'. And Ralph's database gives this as M. colorea - but unfortunately Mila colorea. Any chance that M. colorea is actually Mediolobivia, not Mila, Ralph? Unlikely, but on the other hand q...

Re: Echinocereus Flowers

The apical spines look very brown for stramineus.
I'd go for coccineus. Though not the most exciting flower colour.

You did do well & all so healthy looking, the e.bupleurifolia isn't what the label say its a hybrid might be japonica.
e.bupleurifolia is normally a single chunky stem.
I agreee with Tina: good looking plants; the E. bupleurifolia is the suzannae x bupleurifolia hybrid.

Beautiful plant and crowded flowers, you do like your Eriosyce Christer :razz:
Judging by the quality of the plants (and the photography), the Eriosyce rather like Christer :grin:

Re: Dull, dull, dull

E. coccineus AG11. A form known for non-red flowers. I've had them pink, peachy, and this very nice one. Coccineus means 'scarlet'. 2 of mine; the first could reasonably be said to fit the name E_coccineus.JPG The other wouldn't fit my definition of scarlet. SB236 from Mesa Gardens; from memory Ste...

Echinocereus triglochidiatus
Close... but hover the cursor over the picture, and you'll see 'coccineus'. That's assuming Ian has the correct name :wink:

Re: Water moisture monitor

I either lift the pot to assess the weight, or use the digital method. Stick a finger through the gravel topdressing to feel the soil surface.

Re: Rebutia flavistyla problem

Boron deficiency? That was my second thought. First was rsm, especially on Rebutias, but that usually affects the whole batch of seedlings to a similar extent - at least it does for me. Were the seedlings planted into new compost? I wouldn't expect boron deficiency so quickly. I don't have a third ...
