I am not sure how to list my plant. I have 2 names. E. subdenudata and Echinopsis dominos. I would like to add it to the plant file, however, as it is not in there. Could you help me list it properly so that I may share it with others? Here's 3 pictures of it.

Information:
It is presently 3 inches tall by 5 inches around. Will not get much bigger. It likes a 60% sun and 40% shade, warm climate as I am in 9B, needs little to moderate water, excellent drainage and deep dry in winter. Blooms once in the year and mostly at night. Blooms last 1 to 2 days typically.

Thanks guys I tip my hat to you.

Really glad you like my little Echinopsis. It was a BIG surprise when that happened. It was also the very first bloom I ever had on any of my plants. My garden is very young as I lived in my new home less than a year.

I'll make note of its most recent classification. I stink at Latin names but notice I do have some things that aren't in the plant files. Not knowing Latin names or taking for granted what's on the container I guess doesn't help when it comes to adding to the file. I try.

Hi @AgaveGirl1 Welcome! to All Things Plants from me too!
I don't know much about cactus at all but those are lovely photos of your plants ... I especially love your database photos of that Golden Barrel Cactus!

If you are ever unsure of a plant's scientific name, don't hesitate to ask. We have some really knowledgeable and helpful members here on site ... they've been a tremendous help to me many times!

We have a Plant ID Forum: http://garden.org/forums/view/plantid/ that is very helpful too and generally someone will recognize a plant very quickly and be able to give the name of the plant in question.

Again, Welcome to the site!
