Nice looking flowers! I like how some of the flowers are bigger than the plant itself (and how that type of T bicolor only has 1 color)! =D>

Thanks all. Yes sharpy even the spines on this white flowered form show only one color. It is as a matter of fact more touchy in cultivation than the type either.

another plant that is hard to label
The original label said Neochilenia similar to nigriscoparia- which would now be Eriosyce crispa.
But looking at it it is probably a form around Eriosyce crispa ssp. atroviridis /Pyrrhocactus atroviridis

Awesome, Jens!
Great plants and photography! I really enjoy all what you show out of your beautiful collection!
