Neutral CactusJordi On Aug 11, 2008, CactusJordi from El Cajon, CA wrote:

Only ssp krainzianus has a light yellow flower. Light pink flowers has the ssp sphacellatus. While the ssp lausseri has dark pink flowers.
The ssp. pseudomacrochele has fatter tubercles, much bigger flowers as the above mentioned and colored in striped pink or pure white.
