My mom's cactus today. Can't recall whether it was purchased as an Echinopsis Chamaecereus or a Chamaelobivia. 🤔

@philstalder I know, right?? Every time I get happy about a bloom here or there on my plants, I'll see my mom's living bouquets and feel very foolish and humbled. 🤣

What’s her secret. I’m curious. 🧐

@philstalder she doesn't go according to the plant's needs, just according to what she wants to do. So she kills a lot of stuff, but if the plant's care req's jive with her care style then it'll grow like crazy. I know she had two more Chamaelobivia cacti planted in this pot. The other two rotted, but boy is this one happy! Also, it's a question of longevity. She's had this one at least 6 or 8 yrs.

@sunlovin yes, she has it at the edge of her patio, midway between a tree and a hibiscus bush. I think it only gets a few hours of late morning/midday direct sun, and other than that it's bright shade and reflected sun.
