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 $4.00 each. No international shipping. Please read the front page for ordering information.

Note: I've been collecting and growing Sulcorebutia and Rebutia for over 35 years and have found that it's hard to keep up with the name changes. So I must say I do the best I can with the names. The plants list below where propagated from our old collection plants. Hope you enjoy growing Sulcorebutia and Rebutia as much as I do!

 Rebutia

   Rebutia albipilosa ssp. fiebrigii - This species has an uncommon appeal, and is grown for its beautiful cream-white spines on fuzzy balls. It also produces vibrant orange-red flowers. Northern Argentina and Bolivia. Growing in 2.75" pots. 8 in stock @ $10.00 each.

   Rebutia albopectinata - This species was distributed as ISI 1305 in 1982 as a single clone of the Friedrich Ritter collection (FR 758) propagated by grafting by Charlie Glass. However, it no longer seems to be in general circulation. Like that earlier distribution, the Karel Knize distribution (KK 849 as R. densipectinata, an unpublished synonym), represents the same dark-bodied form. This is truly a gem of the genus forming tight, conical or rounded clusters of small heads usually less than a cm. (3/8") in diameter. While the epithet albopectinata refers to the pectinate (comb-like) clusters of white spines typical of the species, this form has shorter, darker spines that allow the dark, purplish stem color to show. The flowers are the same crimson-red often with magenta on the outer tepals and tube. Plants from controlled pollination of KK 849, originally from 2800 m. at Jucanas, Tarija Department, Bolivia. HBG 120328. Growing in 2.75" pots. 14 in stock @ $10.00 each.

   Rebutia aureispina - 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. Rebutia aureispina distingushes from the standard Rebutia deminuta in that it has stronger shaggy stiff yellowish-brown spines. Bolivia. Growing in 4 1/2" pots. 4 in stock @ $15.00 each.

   Rebutia donaldiana ssp. 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. Growing in 4 1/2" pot. 1 in stock @ $15.00.

   Rebutia donaldiana ssp. 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. Growing in 2.75" pot. 9 in stock @ $10.00 each.

   Rebutia fabrisii ssp. aureiflora -  Rebutia fabrisii var. aureiflora is a local or morphological form of Rebutia fabrisii with bright yellow flowers instead of orange or red, all the other characteristics are identical, namely size and form of stems, spines, form and dimension of flowers, fruit, etc. This prove, that it is impossible to differentiate between these taxa and var. aureiflora should be fully synonymized with Rebutia fabrisii. Yellow flowering form. Argentina. Growing in a 2.75" pot. 1 @ $10.00.

    Rebutia fiebrigii ssp. cajasensis - Came to me with this name? It should be one of the forms of  Rebutia fiebrigii. Heavy bloomer that makes lots of dark orange flowers. Growing in 2.75" pots. 10 in stock @ $10.00 each.

   Rebutia fiebrigii ssp. flavistyla -  Rebutia flavistila is one of the many geographical forms of the extremely variable Rebutia fiebrigii with glassy-white, silky, short spines and light green tubercles thickly covering the body. It produces vibrant orange-red flowers with distinctive yellow (Latin = flavus) filaments and pistil (hence the name). Bolivia. Growing in 3 1/2" pots. 3 in stock @ $13.00 each

    Rebutia heliosa ssp. teresae -  Is merely a long-spined form of Rebutia heliosa. The flowers are more intensely red-orange with a pinkish blush to the outer tepals. White spines & brownish areoles make this plant very attractive even when not in bloom. Bolivia. Growing in 2.75" pots. 3 in stock @ $13.00 each

   Rebutia mentosa ssp. purpurea - Rebutia mentosa subs. purpurea, best known in cultivation as Sulcorebutia purpurea, is one of the larger headed species, solitary or sometime clustering in cultivation when the main head is about 5-7 cm in diameter.

   Rebutia pygmaea ssp. diersiana -  Rebutia diersiana is one of the many geographical forms of the extremely variable Rebutia pygmaea. Flowers from the basal parts of the stem, widely funnel-shaped about 30 mm long and wide.
