Another pilcayensis.

This is my second of two plants of Mamm. spinosissima ssp. pilcayensis, flowering two months or so after the other one has finished!
I love the delicate colour of these pink flowers, & they're slightly paler than on the other plant.

Cheers, CP

Very nice CP, and good size flowers!
I would be sorely tempted to do a macro on one of those guys!

RE: Another pilcayensis.

That's really nice CP! I haven't the desire to get one of my own, so I'll just admire yours from afar.

RE: Another pilcayensis.

Mine is budding out right now. Won't be long now before I have flowers. There are 20 buds and looks to be more on the way.

Believe it or not, I don't have this or any other spinosissima form! But I still like looking at all CPs plants :)
