Well folks, that Mammilaria is looking less like a meiacantha... it's definitely showing buds, and the buds are definitely purplish pink... strange since every pic on the web is white... but the references do say that the flowers can and often do have a pink or purple stripe down each petal... we'll see.
The Echinocereus reichenbachii v. baileyii has two huge blooms coming out, one on each 'head'... probably the end of the week before I see anything out of them. And the other big echinocereus, the unidentified one, is definitely setting a bud.
Should be interesting to see what happens when it does bloom, and we'll see if I'm able to pin down the species...
Aaaaahhhhh! - My eyes!!!!! Advertisements
