The rooting of aselliformis is not difficult if the size of cuttings were more than 3 cm diameter.

A large flower and small flowers

Large flower: Thelocactus heterochromus


Small flowers: Aztekium ritteri

I have been waiting ages for this one to pop but sadly work has prevented me from getting a good picture the past few days. Managed to finally photograph it, just as it was beginning to close

Echinocereus reichenbachii v albispinus

I once collected Gymocalycium possitively but it is no longer.
Some species have still been remained.
The photo is a G. ambatoense. Strong spins limit flowers to open fully.

I watered asterias 2 days ago. Many of asterias pushed flowering buds up in this afternoon.
Some of them opened flowers.
I keep only asterias in this greenhouse.


One of them, a super kabuto

Discocactus is nocturnal flowering.
D. horstii is in flower several times between spring and autumn.
I am not sure the reason but they open flowers at same night together.
They opened flowers last night.

Thanks SneakyCuttlefish for your comment.

Matured Japanese Astrophytum cultivars show distinctive appearances.
Cacti on the attached photos  were in flower in this afternoon, sowed seeds in 2003.

Asterias cv Shin-Watanabe dai now kabuto
I think hanazono gene is mixed in this cactus.


Asterias cv Hanazono kabuto


Myriostigma cv kikkow
Gene of khoyo is mixed but Turning body color is no longer.


Myriostigma cv shimairi Onzuka rampo

The Shin-Watanabe is throwing flowers from some odd places. I always thought astro's were a strickly crown flowering species.

Both of Sin-watanabe and Hanazono kabutos are mixed the hanazono gene.
All areoles and flecks are possible points of flowering.
A Hanazono kabuto opened 30 flowers together once in my place.
Because of that, this cultivar is called Hanazono (flower garden).

The history of Hanazono kabuto is unknown.

Young seedlings have also been in flower.

1 of 20 seedlings of red flowering asterias was in flower in this afternoon.
I sowed seeds on 8th October 2011, 3 years old.


An asterias (Ruri kabuto x miracle kabuto) seedling was also in flower in the afernoon.
This one is also 3 years old and is in 50 mm square tube.
This should be 1st filial of a new form.
