Tephrocactus weberi part 2

Post by RAYWOODBRIDGE » Sat Jul 18, 2020 9:28 pm

On the 27th of June I posted pictures of the brown spine form of the species ref RBT 05 which had bright yellow/gold flowers.
Today the white spine form T weberi P164 is in flower, and these are a strong orange colour with red and yellow highlights and longer spines. ( I thought these were going to be 3 new segments ) :oops:

That's really beautiful, but those spines look fierce!

That's an amazing plant Ray - almost looks artificial or too good to be real!

Better flower colour than the ones I saw in habitat!
