This Rebutia pygmeae v colorea produced a plethora of seeds from its flowers this summer,

which in turn produced this...

A few seeds germinated, but this is the sole survivor, sorta like the last Jedi Knight!

Strange wee beastie, but doesn't look as if it will be pygmeae for very long:)

All Rebutia seem to grow like that. They shoot up as thin columns to a certain height, then they stay at that height and get fatter until they are spherical. Very amusing :)

That seedling is looking quite happy and the flowers are beautiful Amy. Keep us updated on the growth of that seedling.
