Not to discourage you but Rebutias need winter chill in order to grow and bloom well.

Oh i have a very old rebutia few years back, the cleaner broke it into two while cleaning the corridor. Its a very nice white fury one, but it died.

Yes, i finally turn back to cactus growing because my flowering plants are short lived. And tend to get messy when they grow old.

I have about 300-400 cactus seeds sowed at my balcony now, but its very painfull to see them grow lol.
