The Rebutia is a small cactus plant that can easily be cultivated indoors, and is perfectly suited for newcomers as well as for experienced cacti growers that want to develop a neat collection in a small space. Its delicate, funnel-shaped blossoms show sometimes already after one year and spring sideways from the lower part of the plant. The flowers have various colours, from red, purple and pinky to orange, depending on the mix, and open up for a couple of days during the day before closing down in the evenings.
Natural Location: The Rebutia has its natural habitat in the highlands of Tucuman in northern Argentina in heights of 1500 to 4000 meters above sea level.
Cultivation: Seed propagation indoors is possible throughout the year. Spread the seeds onto finely sieved potting compost or cactus earth that contains about 25% sand and is moistened with a water vaporizer. For a light germinator you don't need to put any potting earth on top. Cover the seed container with clear film to prevent the earth from drying out, but don't forget to make some holes in the clear film and take it every second or third day completely off for about 2 hours. That way you avoid mold formation on your potting compost. Place the seed container somewhere bright and warm with a temperature between 20° C and 25° Celsius and keep the earth - preferably with a water sprayer - moist, but not wet. The first seedlings will come up after one or two weeks.
Place: During the low-sunlight months you should keep your Rebutia in a place as bright as possible. During summer, however, you should keep it out of the strong midday sun. Despite the fact that it is a desert plant, even in its natural habitat it is provided by other plants and shrubs with some shade. Ideally the Rebutia is kept during the summer months in a somewhat wind and rain-sheltered place outdoors.
Care: Water the cactus moderate during the growth period and only when the upper layer of the earth has dried out. Watering too much or too often might cause the plant to rot. In a warmer climate it is advisable to spray the plant regularly with a vaporizer and provide fluid fertilizer for cactus plants every two to three weeks.
During Winter: The winter season marks the resting period for the plant that is mandatory for the flower formation. Keep your cactus in a bright and cool place with temperatures between 5? and 10 ° Celsius. Don't water or fertilize the plant until the first flower buds come up in spring.
Bonsai ability: No
