An interesting thought ..... but if it has survived since late 2018 / early 2019 in the same place in the GH?

But it thought it was something that it wasn't.
Now it knows differently it could be wrong growing conditions 🤣
It is lucky plants can't read.

Or even a Rapicactus beguinii :???:
Like the valdezianus discussed a few days ago, there are many names you could use.

Yep, not a Thelocactus.
Thelocactus beguinii is one of the many names you could use :lol:
It may acquire a shorter name like "IT" because that would use less tape

Yes ... on Radio 4 Extra on Thursdays. I record it to listen to it in the car when I'm driving ... on my own.

Gymnocactus beguinii aka Turbinocarpus beguinii photographed this lunchtime as it has opened fully in the sunlight.
Photographed by LED lighting. Also shown is the first UVIVF picture of the year. The images tell me (from my limited analysis of the images of last year) that this is definitely not a Gymnocalycium as first thought from the original plant label. Gymnocalycium flowers have a totally different UVIVF response.
