Sulcorebutia rauschii, the purple, spineless cactus

Look how much my Sulcorebutia rauschii has grown in 2 months! This pot will be too small for it very soon. I feel like this cactus grows like weeds in a lawn.
This one is perfect for the impatient cactus lover. It seems like it grows faster than many other types of cactus (at least after they reach a certain size). Each pup grows a set of babies, which then grow another set of babies etc. Eventually you will have a giant pot of purple bulbs in your garden.
I didn’t get any flowers on my Sulcorebutia this year. Technically, it can still happen, but right now is the time to be careful about watering the outdoor cacti. I wouldn’t want these guys to rot.
