Cover illustration: Pelecyphora aselliformis is a collector's favorite, native only to the state of San Luis Potosí, Mexico. The appeal lies in the peculiarly-shaped tubercles and showy flowers, plus the challenge of growing it successfully. This superb photo is by Darl Bickel, who received his plant as a half-inch graft nine years ago. After two years he removed and rooted the scion. Although he keeps most of his other cacti dry all winter, he does give this plant a light monthly watering to prevent the drying and shedding of the lower tubercles.
