Thanks you guys , my main skill is not to push the plants growth too much - and rather wait another year for flowers ](*,) .
The rest is done by the environment here which is sunny (at least in during summer ) and quite windy.

Yes the redddish tone in the spine color is very unique even in young plants.

Thanks for the coments guys!
Darryl: yes I found the seeds still on the plants when I got them from a friend last year.
PeterB: I like the flowers with translucency or more then one color to them very much too.

But there are pretty North American Cacti too..as I realized again today

Thanks guys, ( btw the Ec pullchellus ssp. weinbergii is missing an n :oops: )

I have this Austrocactus plant for one year now and am quite happy growing it on.
I sowed some A. bertinii seed this winter - but none sprouted so far.

Here are two more pictures from the greeenhouse today
