And now two that show the promise of things to come...The first Turbinicarpu alonsoi, about 4 years old and showing signs of buds and the second one has me quite chuffed, Toumeya papyracantha, almost 3 years from seed and on it's own roots.

So what happening in you greenhouse/collection at the moment ??

Really nice Nava, some beautiful plants and flowers there. I should have some time in the garden tomorrow and will take some shots if possible. I saw some nice Loph flowers today and Turbs too Smile

Been finally getting the start of a bit of colour here last few days. A bit later than others but I don't mind the wait(means a longer break).
The first is always the earliest to flower for me. Turbinicarpus pulcherrimus. Can't find out much about this one but it has a stunning flower like silk. Its a favorite of mine.

Here is another. It's a succulent but I thought it worthy of the cactus forum. Plieospilos c.v. "rubra"

Nice Turb Crypto. I'm growing pulcherrimus as well, but mine has a deep purple flower. Don't think it's considered a valid species these days though - thought to be a natural hybrid between psuedopectinatus and schmiedickeanus/klinkerianus. Seems my plants lean more towards the psuedopectinata while yours towards the schmiedickeanus going by the flowers. What's the spination like on yours ???

Here it is this time last year. It's on a stock with two others of its supposed ilk. They are all very different, I'd heard something about its natural hybrid origin. I can see both of the parents in them all, but way less of schmiedickeanus/klinkerianus. I don't think either parent has that dark purple colour like the one on top, it is more like valdeziana. Even the pectinatus v. rubriflorus is more pinkish/red than purple.

I don't know how I managed to miss these pics... Crypto, your turbs are incredible. The striping on the petals is exquisite.
