While at my favorite nursery I say these two and couldn't resist. They are going into the ground soon but I can't decide whether to plant them close together or not. The one on the left is A.narvaecencis and the one on the right is A. pulchella. Xuling

I hope you have better luck with Rebutia narvaecensis than I did. Mine rotted after blooming. I wouldn't let it get too much rain in winter.

That is a lovely plant NancySLAZ. I can do a little about the frosts and freezes here but nothing about the rainfall. That is where my plants live or die, at least the ones that are in the ground, which is about 95% of them. But I have found that the ones that die , I believe from too much wet soil, are the ones from the big box stores. The ones from the good nurseries tend to handle the winter rains better. Dont' ask me why. bu that is my experience. Xuling

Yes, it WAS a beautiful plant! I got it from a CA grower at a Cactus & Succulent Society sale. I must have overwatered it. I have trouble with Rebutias in that way. I love them so much with their many beautiful flowers, but I have had quite a few rot on me.
