I am not a professional nor an expert in Cactacea or Rebutia, Sulcorebutia taxonomy. Any help with ID and spelling are always welcome. Photos are for reference only. To up-date my list I've been using many books, journals, catalogs and other web-sites. It's been helpful, but I have more work to do. I only ship to the main 48 States. I do ship in the winter. I have 72+ hour heat packs for $3.00 each. No international shipping. Please read the front page for ordering information.

Rebutia

* Rebutia aureispina - I like this ones shaggy spines. Is one of the several forms of the very variable Rebutia deminuta which form a complex of related taxon. It is still unclear whether this variable complex is one or several species. There is so much variation that most authors choose to lump them together. Tarija, Bolivia, 2500-3800 metres above sea level.

* Rebutia fiebrigii - Is a small solitary or mound-forming cactus preading out to 15 cm with white, silky, short spines and light green tubercles thickly covering the body. It is a free-flowering species with bright vermilion blooms, but quite variable. Now days, under the name of Rebutia fiebrigii, botanists include several different forms, that were previously regarded as independent species.Bolivia, Chuquisaca, Tarija, Cochabamba, Salta, Jujuy, Potosí, Santa Cruz, 2100-4000 metres above sea level.

*Rebutia fabrisii ssp. aureiflora - Tiny little heads with fussy spines and lots of light orange flowers. Origin and Habitat: Valle Grande to Valle Colorado, Jujuy, Argentina. Altitude range: 1400-3000 metres above sea level.

*Rebutia krainziana 'inermis' - Clumping globular cactus, up to 5 cm in diameter, and up to 7 cm tall.  It can slowly form clumps. The specially notable characteristics of this cactus is its green naked stem that will turn a lovely purple tinge in full sun. But the most peculiar trait of this plant are the vestigial leaves subtending the small areoles on each tubercle. This is an ancestral trait not manifested in the normal plant.  This trait is revealed thanks to a mutation that permits this odd cultivar to show the characteristic of bearing leaves, reminding us of an ancient era when its cacti ancestors were normal leafed plants.

*Rebutia 'Peach Melba' - A deccade or two I obtaned five grafted Rebutia from Miles 2 Go. I belive he told my they where hybrids made and named for the color of the flowers. This is the one I keep in stock.

* Rebutia pulvinosa FR 766 - Bolivia, Tarija, north-east Tarija, gulley off Rio Pilaya. It is a clustering miniature plant with bright orange flowers.The flowers come in spring and grow from the base of the plant.

* I'm not sure about the ID on the plant. But, I like it and grow it because of the very long spines. - Originally assigned to Rebutia xanthocarpa, as indicated by Backeberg first description for the somewhat short spination, but the shape and size of the flower assigns unambiguously it to the group "Rebutia senilis - Rebutia chrysacantha", and due to the more elongated growth, the yellowish colouration of the spines and the presence of yellow colour in the flowers with wider petals assigns var. elegans rather to Rebutia chrysacantha. Despite all this, due to the fact that this variety is probably not referred to any natural population, it would be more appropriate, as well as for other infraspecific taxa, to use the level of form. It is a small solitary or mound-forming cactus. It grows quite close to the ground and offsets only with age. It would appear that in cultivation they grow larger and cluster more vigorously than in habitat. It is a prolific bloomer.In the original description was cited as a site just generically “north Argentina, Salta”.

*Sulcorebutia gero-senilis - I have found this little hairy cactus has many synonyms = names, so I have left it with the name it had I bought my mother plant seaveral years ago. Origin and Habitat: It grows on stone slopes near Zudañez, Chuquisaca, Bolivia, altitude 2200–2750.

Sulcorebutia

*Sulcorebutia glomeriseta - Is a small clustering cactus that produces dense clusters of vivid yellow blooms in spring. The stems can form pups after a certain size and age. sometimes listed as Rebutia glomeriseta comes from the border area of Bolivia-Paraguay-Argentina. Sucre, Rio Ayopaya Cochabamba, Bolivia. Grows at higher elevations over 1500 meters above sea level.

*Sulcorebutia rauschii forma viridermis 'Black Spines' - Sulcorebutia rauschii cv. Green Form, is a morphological form of the variable Rebutia canigueralii subs. rauschii distinguished for the pure green body (not purple-violet). This cactus is indeed beautiful even without its blooms. Miniature clustering species (rarely solitary), readily forms clumps of many heads. Individual stems 2(4) cm tall, 3(5) cm in diameter. The stem is covered by flat tubercles (5 mm wide) which vary in colour between pale to dark green. In older plants tubercles are arranged in up to 16 spiral line merging in the apex. Zudañez, Chuquisaca, Bolivia

*Sulcorebutia rauschii forma violacidermis 'Black Spines' - Same as above but with black spines. It is a miniature clustering cactus - rarely solitary, readily forms clumps of many purple heads with characteristic very short, black spines form of a fishbone.

*Sulcorebutia santiaginiensis HBG 2927 ISI 9120 - I bought my orginal plant 25+ years ago and it came with this name. Now it see it's listed with other names. But I still use the name it came with. I like it and I grow it! Origin and Habitat: Aiquile to Santiago, Cochabamba. Bolivia. Altitude: 2400-2900 above sea level.
