Nice plants and flowers! I especially like the red color of that Gymnocalycium tillianum's flower! =D>

No, the T. weberi with the darker spines had just broken off the mother plant but flowered without roots anyway.

Thanks , I ´ve grown the oligoacanthus for two years from a cutting now . It seems to be more free flowering than Thephro alexanderi forma geometricus. Geometricus flowers similar but larger though.

In the background you can see the T. oligoacanthus from the picture above

Marvellous as always, Jens!
