Thank you for your encouragement. It means a lot coming from all of you!

Tony
There are actually two clones growing side by side. The largest clone if my poor addled memory serves me right (as it does on occasion) has been growing for seven years now. It gives a little better flower display. The second clone is four years old it grows longer more densely spined branches than the first. The flowers of both are identical.

Andy
I will post a shot of the pads when I get home today.

Thanks for the pics, so it kinda looks like there could be some polyacantha in one or two of those to me. Would help explain the larger flower.

I thought I'd show the differances between my two clones of Cylindro. spinosior.
Here are the cup shaped flowers and shorter spines of the first clone.

These next are of a wide open blossom and denser spineage or the second clone.Spineage is a word isn't it??'
