Rebutia minuscula crest

Every year at about this time of the year, this old grafted crest is among the first to bloom (originally from the late László Nyerges at Desert Nursery in Deming, NM). It's a wonderful and dependable Rebutia minuscula crest. The normal plant also goes by the common name of "Red Crown" cactus and is from northern Argentina. This was one of the first cacti we grew some 40 years ago.
As an aside, we very much miss our annual visits and conversations with Laszlo when we would drop by his nursery on Copper Street in Deming. It was always worth the visit.
