FR1115

Post by Paul D » Tue May 11, 2021 11:57 am

Does anyone have a mature, branching plant of FR1115 (Friedrich Ritter), originally described as Rebutia rosalbiflora?
Would you be so kind as to let me see a pic of it?

I have this plant acquired from Abbey Brook in 1994 as R. rosalbiflora, and believe it to be FR1115. While I cannot be certain, I have visited Ritter's locality or nearby, and have seen identical plants there myself.

Note that it is the non-flowering plant in this pic, which lets you see the spines better.

Many thanks Ralph. I am trying to decipher Ritter's original description in Latin and his subsequent description in German in his book, which seem to be describing two different plants. Or my translation skills are hopeless :roll: It doesn't help when he uses abbreviations of German botanical terms.

Here's a couple photos of one of my FR 1115. The photos are heavily cropped as the roseoalba here was part of a group photo with some other pygmaea forms. This was just a couple days ago.

The seeds came from Ludwig Bercht originally, and the plant is 7 years old.

Thanks Karl for the photos and Kees for the offer. I think I've succeeded- my efforts are on the website under A. amblypetala. I found a key to the abbreviations.

I finally found my plant of FR1115. Here's a picture of it, not flowering, but as you can see, the body is a perfect match for the Abbey Brook plant.

Apologies for the dreadful lack of focus on the pic. I was in a hurry when I took it.
