This gorgeous cactus from northern Argentina is the type species of the genus Rebutia. As in other species of Rebutia, the large bright red flowers are not produced at the top of the stem, but from around the base.
Sowing advice: For best results, sow seeds in good light at any time onto a good very gritty, soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit to approximately their own depth. We recommend germinating at 15 to 20 degrees C. Seeds should ideally germinate in between 2 and 6 weeks although they make take considerably longer. Pot on seedlings before finally planting out into a container or a well-drained spot in warmer countries.
