Cactus / kotschoubeyanus

An ariocarpus kotschoubeyanus was in flower.
It should be in flower in May, too early flowering.
I assume daytime has been shorter gradually and the cactus reacts against to the change.

Cactus / castanea

An Frailea castanea was in flower yesterday.
Buds of Frailea are finished off without opening normally but it was opened actually.
Since I lost many of this species, I have tried to regain quantity but the germination rate of this species is quite poor by unknown reasons.
