Kaelkitty's Journal: JFC0359 Eriosyce (Delaetia) taltalensis subsp. taltalensis (woutersiana)

Initial Notes:

Acquired in a 8cm pot in 1978 from Jack Bywaters as Neochilenia! woutersiana. I am not so sure about the reduction to E. taltalensis as the plant in Backeberg is VERY distinctive. Valid collection numbers for Delaetia woutersiana are KK 1597 and KK 1693 both collected by Karel Kníže in Chile. . This plant died in the mid 1980s, probably from root rot.
