A Fluffpuff for Monday
On Monday mornings, I need something to lift my spirits, and today, I chose my Rebutia albipilosa, aka "Fluffpuff". It's can still grow just a little bigger than this, then can grow offsets which can be cut and rooted. Has gorgeous, and quite large, flame-orange flowers. The rest of the time, it's just fluffy, which is okay with me. I water once a week with acidified water, and it's growing in cactus soil with a gravel top to prevent rot.
