Kaelkitty's Journal: JFC0111 Wigginsia sellowii (vorwerkianus)
- Member: Kaelkitty
- Journal: Plant Catalogue
- Category: Cacti
- Status: Dead
Initial Notes:This plant was acquired in the mid 1970s as Malacocarpus vorwerkianus, a name which was first reduced to varietal status and later to synonymy. The description given in Backeberg seems to indicate a much smaller plant overall with the yellow flowers being only 2cm across compared to the W. sellowii type description of 4.5cm in diameter. Unfortunately it died in the mid 1980s without flowering.
