Echinocereus viridiflorus v. davisii SB 426 (Brewster Co, TX), sown March 2019, photographed 28/4/21.
There are 9 plants in the 2 pots shown, 6 of them were in flower.
None of the plant bodies are bigger than about 15mm - a proper miniature!
Miniature, relatively quick to flower and with striped petals, 3 x win! If you happen to have some seeds off all those flowers.. :wink:

cactus-art.biz has a photo of a 7 years old specimen a size of a thumb!

Echinocereus (Wilcoxia) poselgeri v. kroenleinii SB 869 shot yesterday, sown May 2018.
First flowering for this plant, nice to have all 3 flowers open at once.

The Echinocerei I posted on Wednesday are in the allotment greenhouse. It gets more sun than the cold frame on the garage roof, so not surprisng that the Echinocerei there are a little slower to flower, but they're getting going now today.

The coccineus here are SB236, all pink flowered

Pamanesiorum (Lau 1247) is a more delicate shade

These came as roemeri, so also coccineus, but a more obvious colour for the name

Russanthus (SB965) has smaller flowers, but then the plants aren't all that large

The russanthus (same seed batch, so also SB965) with yellow-green flowers has finished flowering a bit faster than its siblings. They are both in flower together in this previous thread
The larger plant bottom left in the cold frame is E. fendleri (its flowers distinctly overexposed in the photo above)

And finally polyacanthus SB191..
