Front cover: Gymnocalycium papschii VS160. The CITES Cactaceae Checklist has this as G.calochlorum but many workers list it as G.erinaceum. Wolfgang Papsch is reported to have stated that his plant was nearest to G.erinaceum. Whatever name you choose to go with, the glorious flowers of this ‘gymno’ make it well worth adding to your collection. This is one of the many plants featured in Chris Leather’s ‘In my greenhouse’ article in this issue. (Photo: Chris Leather)
