They're all beautiful, Arjen. But Spring wouldn't be complete without those colorful Rebutias. Ahhhh...so nice!

Hello Arjen,
I agree with Ralf. Those cacti of yours are nice specimens. I especially like the Mammillaria duwei and also the Gymnocalycium bruchii. :)

Arjen - Did you grow that Sulco from seed or how long to blossom time! Love the red-orange rim of blossoms!
