I have an unhealthy obsession and addiction to succulents and cactus, but hey, at least it’s not meth.


Could be worse y’know.

How about some more flowers. This time from a Gymnocalycium! I don’t have that many Gymnocalyciums in my collection, but I have been sure to choose some of the nicest. I think this species is one of the nicest Gymnocalycium species, with a nice flat, brown body and lovely whitish flowers.

Gymnocalycium ragonesei.

Mine didn’t flower this year.

This plant of Thelocactus conothelos is not a very large specimen, but it is putting on a nice floral display. From northeastern Mexico.

Just opened today.  Note those big spines - like toothpicks.
