Rebutia

 

After the recent incorporation of the genera Aylostera, Mediolobivia, Rebutia, Sulcorebutia, and Weingartia into the genus Rebutia, there are now around 60 species of cactus native to the eastern side of the Andes Mountains in Bolivia and Northern Argentina. They are generally small globular cacti, 4 inches in diameter or generally less (10 cm). Many species form large clusters. The genus Rebutia is named after P. Rebut, French cactus dealer and expert from the 19th century.

Rebutias bloom easily and have relatively large daytime flowers. Flowers are generally yellow to red, although some species have white ones. They come from the lower part of the stem.

Optimal growing conditions vary. Here the old names are quite useful since they give some ideas of what to expect. All the species need a gritty, well drained, slightly acidic cactus soil. They also need strong light, although generally not too much direct sunlight. They need good watering in summer, but you should allow the soil mixture to dry out between watering. Many Mediolobivia grow large tap roots and are best suite to a deper than normal pot and gritty cactus compost. The plants from the original genus Rebutia are fairly cold resistant and will take some frost. The Sulcorebutia on the other hand are generally less cold resistant. The Weingartia are less rot-prone than other species, and are the least frost resistant.

Rebutia are propagated by seed or offsets. The seeds should be less than 12 months old.
