Please discuss and post related photos for Contest 36: The Cacti of Texas here.

This would be a great opportunity to document photos of all these Texas plants to have a (as complete as possible) photo gallery thread. Pick your favorite for the contest and post the rest here! :)

I was at 'sixes and sevens' about which photo to post ...this would be my favourite Echinocereus flower, to bad it doesn't flower so well here. This is the only time (so far) that I've had a flower on this one.

I was conflicted about which picture to post. I posted the photograph I like most, but this one shows more of the spination of this terrific plant.

Lophophora fricii Mexico only?

Lophophora echinata = L. diffusa? Mexico only.

I'm stalling for time while I work out if I have any cacti from Texas worth photographing :?

I do have a few opunita from Texas but I had to go with a closeup of the little jewel O. pottsi.

Perhaps I'll dig up some Epithelantha photos? Escobaria minima? One of these little Ariocarpus that are almost extinct?

I see the guide has L. fricii listed as growing in Texas but the books i have do not list any other varieties other than L. williamsii.

Sorry, I assumed that all Lophs are native to Texas. :oops: Do I have to change my entry?

Well, I've found distribution info hard to come by on subspecies and varieties. Fine-tunning that is an on-going project. If anyone sees things like this that need correct, give me a shout and I'll fix it.

Byron - rather than change the pic, how about change the name to L. williamsii? :wink:

L. echinata could refer to either of them...but from what i've seen it's mostly associated with L. diffusa.

I did mention that not all varieties and subspecies grow in Texas ;)
