    Default Cactus Flower

    I picked both of these up on a recent trip to one of my favorite greenhouses in
    Florida. They had no tags but I loved the pattern on the barrel and just the curiosity of what the flowers would look like.... couldn't pass them up. I know the barrels look slightly different, I'd bet they are the same species. Problem is I have no name... not even a genus. If I had at least a genus I could research the species, since I doubt they are hybrids. How about some help here....

    Nice Gymnocalycium mihanovichii friedrichii Howard. That's the one on the right anyway. You usually see the bright red, yellow, etc.. forms of Gymnocalycium mihanovichii grafted. Not sure about the other.

    Thanks Jeff... I was hoping you'd see the posting. I'm sure the one on the left is the same genus.... maybe not the same species.
