Enjoy your plants!

This is an old specimen of Gymnocalycium pflanzii, originally sold to us as a seedling as var. lagunillasense, one of the many varieties and forms which have from time to time given to this highly variable species, but which are no longer accepted by most. It's a very impressive plant with a very nice large flower. It's native to Paraguay, Bolivia and Argentina and grows very easily as a potted specimen. Will burn if given too much sun, but appreciates fairly frequent watering during the warmer months.
