Identifying my Gymnos

Post by mmcavall »

Starting a thread to identify my Gymnos

I'll start reposting a picture of the plant #0560, post elsewhere in the forum and proposed to be a variation of G. quehlianum ou G. alboareolatum. This plant will bloom soon, so I'll have a flower and post it here to confirm the ID.

The next plant I would like to know the ID is this one, #0565. Any inputs will be appreciated.

I'll post some other Gymnos in this thread, but let's take it easy...a few plants per week.
Thanks!

Another possibility is (some form of) spegazzinii ?

Can anyone confirm that the plant #560 is indeed Gymnocalycium albiareolatum, now that I have a picture of the flowers?

Or would it be a variation of G. quehlianum? Spines make me confused.

Thanks!

Looks like G. quehlianum for me. It is very variable species. Flowers of G. (albiareolatum) alboareolatum look rather light pink.

Spines of quehlianum can be different - light to dark, half colored, long or short, suppressed or pointing up.
Synonyms Echinocactus platensis var. terweemeanus
Gymnocalycium amoenum
Gymnocalycium asterium
Gymnocalycium obductum
Gymnocalycium stellatum
Gymnocalycium stellatum occultum
Gymnocalycium parvulum var. amoenum
... all look little different.

Thank you, George. I read that G. albiareolatum would have a pinkish throat and I suposed it could be a pinkish throat. But when you know the plant you can tell the difference
Spines reminds me of quehlianum and although my quehlianum is quite different I understand that there may be lots of variation within a species. I'll be conservative and consider it as quehlianum...and will thy to croos it with the other quehlianum I have.
Thank you

It is always hard to tell what the Gymno is without knowing the origin or history of the plant.

Here is one plant, my seedling, that was delivered from parents raised from Koehres seeds long time ago. And all the offspring I grew had little different spines, ribs, body colour.

Hi George, I am sorry I didn't reply before. Beautiful planta! Indeed, there can be much variation within quehlianum
Here is my "regular" quehlianum
Thanks!
