Acanthocalycium Thionanthum v. Glaucum

Just thought I would share these little cacti with you. I have three of these little beauties and have enjoyed the yellow flowers in combination with the gray body of the plant. The plant on the left is also acanthocalycium, but a different variety that I have not identified yet.

These plants are fairly new to my collection, so I don’t know if they are  slow growers or just don’t get very big. Time will tell.

These two close-ups are on my third acanthocalycium in another dish garden. Both plants bloomed on the same day. Note how nice it looks with the gray-blue succulents in that pot.

Some acanthocalyciums have green bodies. I happen to like these little gray ones. Either color would be an nice addition to your collection.
