Love the Pedio flowers. They look kind of delicate for such a spiney "hard" looking plant.

The name on the Gymno, beguinii - do you pronounce that "beg-win-e-eye"?

I think I say beg-win-ee-eye. Woody Minnich tells a funny story about taking a group on a tour of mexico and telling them "Tomorrow, we are going to the big weeny eye!" (at least that's what one of the tour group members heard).

a few of one of my favorite earlier bloomers, Echinofossulocactus phyllacanthus var. violaciflorus, slightly confused today by the sudden drop in temps.

Seedling pics at 6 weeks. Ready to go outside into fresh air and shaded natural light, regular watering/drying cycles in another couple of weeks.

great list,Peterb. I sown E. russanthus fa. cowperi in november 2008 and flowered after 2 years:
Blum et Al, call this species chloranthus ssp. rhyolithensis.
when I arrived from A & M.Ohr, the label was written
russanthus ssp. rhyolithensis fa. cowperi RC7/95 (but on this acronym I have not found anything)
here the picture

Angelo, interesting that cowperi is considered a synonym of rhyolithensis. I have about three tiny cowperi seedlings right now, so we will see what they do. Yes, I grow seedlings in a tray and pots without baggies. I like to interact with them a lot. :-)

I think they only look huge because the photos are super macros, using a tripod. But I love looking at the details. It turns out also that photography is a good way to inspect the pots for problems, etc.

the name ryolithensis was given because the habitat of this species is covered with igneous red-brow rock.

Wow, I'm really impressed. By all the seedlings and before that, by the Pediocactus (I don't have), the Mamm lasiacantha (this seems to be the subpopulation of M lasiacantha without the feathering on the spines), and that Stenocactus. Nice work!
