The Sulcorebutia rauschii exploded with growth

Maybe it was the new pot or maybe it happened because I started to fertilize. But the Sulcorebutia rauschii exploded with growth in spring and especially here in summer.
I love this one because of its color and because they grow in big clusters, filling out the entire pot in no time. A couple of years ago I saw one in a garden center labeled as “rare cactus”. The cluster was just about the size of mine and it cost DKK 300 ($40). I bought mine as a mini-plant with only one head for DKK 25 ($3) in 2017. I’m glad I didn’t buy it back when I first saw it.
