(tu) A good year for your Maihueniopsis! Mine have not started yet, and I was very late in watering them this spring.

Nice bunch of flowers there Mike :grin:
I am with Tony, watered mine late.
I like the way you say " Found this today " I know what you mean Mike, especially if they are up on a top shelf but it is a nice surprise.

I'm not a grower of Opuntia but that does make one sit up and comment.
Endeavouring to grow Aeoniums, Aylostera, Echinocereus, Echinopsis, Gymnocalycium, Lithops, Matucana, Rebutia, and Sulcorebutia.
Currently being wooed by Haworthia, attempting hybridisation, and enticed by Mesembs.

Also these are in the greenhouse on the allotment so I don’t see them every day.

That’s a lovely rich colour and has the same label as one of mine…..sadly I don’t recall where it came from.
