M. Karwinskiana vs Voburnensis

Post by Spikylover » Thu Dec 28, 2017 9:23 pm

Can someone please explain to me what's the difference between these 2? To me they look exactly alike. Thr only difference i see is dichotomous split vs pupping and a few more radials. Am i missing something?

Thanks,
Radials.

I checked the pictures of those two and noticed the tubercles are slightly different. Karwinskianas are more angular and voburnensis' more rounded. Also read articles about those two from llifle and it says the same. Voburnensis colour also varies more than karwinskianas according to llilfle, and can be green, red, orange, yellow, when karwinskiana is only different shades of green. Karwinskiana grows bigger than the other.
Notices you made are great way to seperate them from each other.
There's also differences in natural habitat but that is thing you can't tell only by looking the plant.
