Awesome! Mine is also opening up some flowers right now but not yet as many as yours. I freaking love those over-saturated flowers!!!

How long have you grown that one? It looks quite a bit larger than mine.

Hi Matt...very nice...mine is about 3 years old...it was very small when i started out...i attached a pic of it...over time it grew out like crazy, i pretty much used fertilizers and hormones (NPK, Fox Farms, and Hormex)...I also think it grew out because I put it in a 6 inch pot...i would like to get some seed from it but i read that the rose quartz cactus rarely ever make any seeds...i have cut the stem branches and gave them away to friends...they are super easy to propagate in that way too...maybe moving it to a larger pot will also allow it to spread out too...i also have a golden ball cactus and that one has produced a ton of seed over the last several years...now it's flowering out too...

Awesome! I have a few plants I acquired last year from Barry Rice (ironically he now grows cacti more than CPs!) and most of them have produced pups already. Once we're settled in Missouri, let's get in touch and do some trades :)
