Rebutia



One of my Sulcorebutia rauschii
(Rebutia canigueralii) flowering


    Native to the Andes Mountains of Bolivia and Argentina, Rebutia is a genus of 60 or so small, mostly clumping globular cacti. Aylostera, Mediolobivia, Rebutia, Sulcorebutia, and Weingartia are now included in the genus which is named in honor of Pierre Rebut, a 19th century cacti expert. Rebutias are mostly know for their exquisite flowers which come in shades of yellow, red, purple and sometimes white. The flowers are quite large compared to the plants themselves which rarely exceed 4 inches in diameter. The flowers arise from the sides of the plant near the bottom instead of the crown like most globular cacti. With some species color and spination can be interesting too.
    Rebutia will grow well in a mineral based well draining mix. Some are prone to rot and should be kept fairly dry in winter and watered moderately in summer. They need good light to grow well and flower, but most can't take full sun. Rebutia can be grown from seeds or offsets as most species are clustering.
