Thanks! I’m surprised how well the bed is working so far. Definitely one of my favourite Echinocereus. It’s nice how the flowers remain open day and night for a good week as well :grin:

Echinocereus coccineus
Would you be fairly confident with that Mike?

I didn't have coccineus on the seed list, but it could have come from somewhere else of course.

Another E. Viridiflorus... I can't take any credit for this, having purchased it recently already starting to come into bud. I am pleased with my purchase.

That’s a lovely little plant JonNo. I’ve not got E.viridiflorus yet but it’s one I’ll likely pick up soon since it’s considered one of the cold hardiest of Echinocereus.

E-Bay purchase, would appear as at time of writing seller still has four left if that's of interest...

Echinocereus amoenus with an insane flower display for the size of plant. This is a 6cm pot and the plant itself can be hardly 2cm in diameter.
