Those look superb. So much better than my disappointment today when Schick Cabaret opened its first flower, only to be immediately downgraded to NoID status! 🤕🤬. Don’t you hate it when you buy a mislabelled hybrid!
If anyone has a good Cabaret pup, please message me…..

I had the opposite with one species supposedly gemmata, but actually wrongly labeled; it was actually a named hybrid.
But easy to pull out the label to read it and then stick it back into the wrong pot.
Endeavouring to grow Aeoniums, Aylostera, Echinocereus, Echinopsis, Gymnocalycium, Lithops, Matucana, Rebutia, and Sulcorebutia.
Currently being wooed by Haworthia, attempting hybridisation, and enticed by Mesembs.
