Parodia lauii

Parodia lauii - one of the relatively resent additions to old genus Parodia. Parodias used to be very popular among growers, and for good reason - they are very colorful plants, with nice flowers too. In recent years  popularity of the genus subsided significantly, the genus simply going out of fashion I'd say. It is really hard to find a good specialized Parodia collection now days.
But plants are same pretty, and with South America's wild places becoming more accessible lots of nice new forms are available in trade. Don't turn away from those beauties!
