Rose,
That is a nice looking one and blooming. I just got some M. carmenae v rubrispina seeds started. As the name implies, red spines!!!

Hi Dan,
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.

Hello Anya,

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.

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.
