Very nice!
There are many meanings for the word pico in Spanish, but i think in this case one spine would cover it.

Awesome, Jens!
It looks like that you have that what we all waited for the whole winter.

You're welcome, Jens! No problem!
What have you done that yours has flowers and mine not? :-k
I can't understand the nature anymore. ](*,)

Thanks for your beautiful pictures!

Compared with the W. tamaulipensis the schmolliis are really floppy.
Here is another picture of the blooming rubber plant.
