Rebutia

Post by Zigs » Sun Nov 22, 2020 6:25 pm

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:

Hi Zigs
I think the plant you have is Aylostera pseudodeminuta
Your old label most likely says Rebutia nitida ( not mitioa ) which was a very old name for a plant which was moved to Rebutia pseudodeminuta, which itself has now become Aylostera pseudodeminuta
Hope this helps

Thanks folks :smile:

That makes sense, the seller could have mis read the handwritten label.

Looks like we've got some propagating to do then :grin:

As Ray says, I suspect the original label said Rebutia nitida. I have a plant with that name which looks pretty similar.

Its variously considered to be a form of (now) Aylostera deminuta or A. pseudodeminuta, as others have suggested.
