From seed sown 2003
New York Joe,
Is that a Bolivian one? It sure is pretty. I remember suggesting at one time that these are South American versions of the North American Pediocactus, but my colleagues suggested that it was the beer and not sense talking.
A suggestion - #2 pencil is better than a Sharpie for your labels. Pencils, unlike rust and marker ink, don't fade away. With as much nomenclatural, accessional, locational and repotting data that can go on a label, you don't want to have to guess as as to whether is spelled Cochabamba or Coachabimbo.
I have a larger speciman of this...Absolutely remakable.
It's done blooming now but it's producing tons of fruit.I'll definitely be tasting it!
