Aylostera seedlings

Post by Christian » Tue Jun 15, 2021 12:21 am

Pleased to see these in flower recently:

Aylostera albopectinata (I am surprised how far these flowers open):

A band of Aylostera azurduyensis:

Very nice Christian. They look like relatively large flowers on the albopectinata too.

Looking good. I'm a little surprised to see pinkish tinges in your azurduyensis seedlings, as mine are a very pure white. I wonder if a little narvaecensis has got in there somehow?

I agree!
Here are a couple of my Rebutia (etc) albopectinata FR 758 from the same batch of seed.
1 clone has much larger flowers. I still like the prolific small flowered clone:

I think you might be right there, Ralph. The plant on the right is more or less pure white, but the others have a faint pink stripe on some petals. I might have to try again with seed from a different source! Nice to see some bigger A. albopectinata, Edward! (tu)

I noticed that the A. azurduyensis are not setting seed, despite being described as self-fertile -another gift from the narvaecensis influence in these perhaps?
