An other Onzuka was in flower yesterday.
This one is the original form of the Onzuka, elongated in mature age.
I sowed seeds in 2003.


This one is very young, Astrophytum hanazono kabuto x red flowering asterias.
I sowed seeds on 5th August last year.
12 seedlings were grafted onto Pereskiopsis stocks.
It is 1st flower on the cactus.

Since I saw similar flowers before, I checked my old photos and found that the same asterias opened crested flowers every year since 2012.
The asterias has just 6 ribs. The body form is also abnormal.

I sowed seeds in 2004.

It seems tips of tubercles on your agavoides have been damaged significantly.
What was it happened?

Considering I am used to standard lophophora's flowering multiple times a week, this is a rare sight for me.

This is a true breeding lophophora williamsii 'caespitosa'. Seed grown. Very old. First time in 2 years it has flowered. I crossed it out several times with other lophophora's over the course of 2 days. Fingers crossed it produces fruit.


The next image is its offspring the seed was planted last season. The large head in the centre is actually a texana, the clump right next to it is the caespitosa. They have recently been sprayed with sulphur so ignore the ugly white marks.
