Here is another one I have been getting a lot of enjoyment from. Again, wanted to share my fun. : )
Here is a link that might be useful: Mammillaria Carmenae Blooming
That is one beautiful plant! I think I need one : )
That is a nice looking one and blooming. I just got some M. carmenae v rubrispina seeds started. As the name implies, red spines!!!
Lincoln, NE USDA zone 5
Thanks, as I did not put the "v. rubrispina" in there did I? Shame on me. : )
The spines do make both flowers & plant. I will change that now. lol
Thanks to you & Jen both for the compliments.
I have two, the normal one and the rubrispina which gets pale pink flowers.
I have a photo of my normal one in bloom at the moment. I'll have to post it.
Nice photo of a nice plant there.
Thanks Toni-Marie, looking forward to seeing yours. : )
I was looking in your album: beautiful plants and pictures. But one took my atention, it look strange for an Echinopsis. I think it,s more a LOBIVIA.
Here is a link that might be useful: ECHINOPSIS WRIGHTIANA
Lobivia wrightiana is a synonym for Echinopsis backegergiana subsp. wrightiana; Echinopsis wrightiana is a name that does not exist.
Rodica & Pieter,
Thank you both for letting me know this. If you happen to see any more wrongly ID'ed, please let me know.
I put down the name "Echinopsis wrightiana", due to was what it was called when I purchased it. Well we all know how that can be some times. : )
I am glad to be able to give it a proper name now. Personally, I do not like refering to it as Echinopsis at all, nor a lot of others they now call Echinopsis... Most just don't look right to me. I don't think they fit the catagory right. I hate change!
I cannot see calling my "TRICHOCEREUS", an Echinopsis either, dispite what they want to call it now.
Again, I thank you both for the proper ID though.
