great looking ornamental cactus from Bolivia- several cultivars available with either purple coloration or colorful small spines. I have had this plant for years, but it finally rotted on me (probably watered when I shouldn't have). Very slow growing but a great looking clumper- dark to light green small spheres with barely any spines (a user-friendly species) that does great in a window sill, though appreciates sun when it can get it. But a bit too cold for my climate (9b)- trouble with it outdoors, too.

One of the smaller cultivars of Rebutia. Has small white-cream colored flowers, sometimes with pink streaks along the length of the petal. Sometimes its lower petals may be darker/have an orange tint. It clumps, sometimes prolifically.
An undesirable feature of this cultivar is that it has weak roots -- rot prone, shallow, slow growing, and mechanically vulnerable.

Rarely has a set of presidential orders lined up so nicely with the Jewish calendar. Chag Sameach! #TuBishvat #ClimateDay #ClimateAction

— Dayenu (@JoinDayenu) January 27, 2021

A number of faith groups, including GreenFaith and the Minnesota chapter of Interfaith Power & Light, urged the Biden administration to take steps to halt the Enbridge Line 3 oil pipeline.

Kat Kramer, climate policy lead for U.K.-based Christian Aid, said in a statement that it was good to see the president "has hit the ground running on climate." She said the U.S. must help the countries most vulnerable to global warming adapt to its impacts.

The youth-led Sunrise Movement said the president's actions symbolize "a turning point in this country's climate politics and our nation's history." It highlighted how a number of the steps reflect aspects of the Green New Deal, even as Biden has sought to distance his own climate agenda from it.

Sunrise Executive Director Varshini Prakash urged Biden to press for "transformative" climate legislation, and if necessary, support abolishing the filibuster in the Senate to pass it.

Crown Cactus: Growing Rebutia Cacti

Commonly called crown cacti, the Rebutia genus includes some of the most popular and easiest to grow cacti, making them perfect for beginners. These plants are native to high elevations in South America, where they grow in clusters on the mountains. They are frequent bloomers and readily send out offshoots, so even plants only two or three years old will form an attractive cluster of small plants. Their flowers typically emerge from the base of the plant or between individual plants in the same cluster, as opposed to the crown of the plant. In terms of culture, they are not particularly difficult and like bright light and light moisture.
