Rebutia minuscula

This tight mess of flowers completely hides the modest stem of Rebutiao minuscula. All of the 'true' Rebutias are easy in culture and common among amateur collectors plants. Here in California they prefer partial shade away from greenhouse heat in the middle of the summer, and bright sunny position other time. Plants reach flowering size in about a year from seed, and reliably bloom at two years age. Flowering of Rebutia minuscula is usually only once per season in mid to late spring, other species may have repeating blooms over the season, or even over the whole year.
