Up until now I thought of you as the "Lone Wanderer," now I'll have to add "Master of the Sagging Pallets." :)

side view of the nice ctenoides, from seed sown years ago, first flower for some reason. Basically, a pectinatus plant with a sort of dasyacanthus flower. Fascinating.

My Escobarias are as fat as they ever get but no sign of flowers yet. No flower from E. ctenoides either, but I'm really looking forward to it one day.

That picture shows why E. ctenoides is so desirable.

E engelmannii with maybe some fasciculatus

I think that aptly describes most of the Echinocereus I see on a daily basis :).
Nice photos as usual. That O. basilaris flower is awesome.

2nd Tumamoc's praise of basilaris! Which reminds me -- What's the diff between basilaris & microdaysis v. rufida? :-k I inherited one or the other -- hoping basilaris -- more cold-hardy & love blossom :D
