Is my plant mis-named??
I cannot find any pics that match this color.
Am I making this little guy suffer too much without water, it seems awfully deflated according to pics on the web (his ribs are showing) ;)

RE: sulcorebutia canigueralli

Thank you Pieter and Jen
I have only had this plant since last October and it survived our winter sitting on my kitchen window sill.
I am determind not to let this one rot as I have done to others. Just a little dribble of water every now and then ;)

RE: sulcorebutia canigueralli

I have several of these. There is the green form which is what you have, and the purple form. I have both.
My purple form hasn't flowered yet because it is too small but my green form produces plain purplish flowers.
