    Default a blooming cactus for Christmas

    Hi, would like to take the opportunity here to wish all OTF members Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

    found this Cactus in one of the nursery in Cameron Highlands about a month plus ago. they got a bunch of neglected cactus there, but not doing so great but some were striving very well. they have outgrow their 2 inches pot and the color is full of vigor. the only setback is too much moss accumulation around the base of the cactus because of excessive water (the plastic roofing above is tearing apart) during the rainy spell of late.

    i am not sure of the exact id except that it belongs to the gymnocalycium genus.
