I agree your desert looks beautiful. The most spiny seedling I have right now... as far as substance goes is this one from zelly. The spines are so thick they make music when you rub your fingers across them. I am absolutely in love with this little one.

Diffusa - 4th flower so far this season, sadly can't source any lopho pollen to pollinate

I assume you mean this is the fourth flower on this one specimen this season otherwise you could use frozen pollen from one of your other specimens. Last ditch effort, you could put pollen from a different genus on your cacti and just hope for the best.

Yes fourth flower on this plant, I only have one diffusa, I did however grab the closed dried flower from the diffusa and put it on the caespitosa(first time it's flowered since I got it) flower, hoping it'll produce seed, I would really love another flowering diffusa but since they take so long to flower once they start no one wants to part with them- 

 

diffusa is also pushing out two new pups, originally thought it was one but the second one just poked its head out yeasterday

Here's a few pictures of my Roseii #1 in flower. Sorry about the massive images but I haven't posted much on the new BB. Flowers, man.

diffusa>

well someone told me diffusas are self-pollinatable and also compatible with pollinated with a williamsi. I sowed some seeds this year, I hadnt sown anything for years, but had a bad rate for diffusas despite freshness. 

 

my new passion is ferobergias (along with red spined ferocacti and hybrids) and here is one of my favourites. It's a "violet f2 x leuchtenbergia"
