    Planted outside in the garden last autumn. First flower on it now.

      Well done!
      I have R.muscula (in bloom now as well) but having spines that are 'more hairy' I suspect that it would be less hardy. In truth I'm yet to find a cactus that does survive outdoors here. Most seem happy enough in a cold greenhouse though.

      I've also Opuntia growing outside for six years. Started as one sprig and "millions" of them now. No flowers on it, though.
