Eriosyce subgibbosa

February in California means spring is here.
This E.subgibbosa plant always blooms in the winter. It has typical Neoporteria flowers, quite alien looking among other Cactaceae blooms.
Neoporteria subgibbosa is a species with notable variable spination among plants from different localities, spines always strong, making plants hard to handle safely.
Note double-bud per areole production this plant demonstrates, uncommon feature among cacti plants.
