mutated flowers have been known to vary in form, often lacking petals. Some flowers will display aberrantly shaped petals that appear bizarre. Color of petals have been known to change in clones, varying from cream, pink and fuchsia. Flowers can appear as just a cluster of white stamens with truncata type, deep yellow anthers.

Kakt. and. Sukk. 39: 69-71. 1988; EPIG 68: 5-13. 2012The original plant was kept by "Waldo’s Greenhouse" in Muncie (Indiana, USA), This plant had small brown-orange petals. Around 1980 Glenda Wood (Anderson, Indiana) obtained a cutting from there. At her place the plant developed creamy-light pink flowers. The next step in the journey was the "California Epi Center". In their colored catalog (1987/1988) the plant was first documented with buds and flowers as we know it now. It seems a natural mutation, a sport or monstrous form. While S. 'Happy' and 'Thor Wild Cactus' develop more or less the same flowers on each occasion, S. 'Enigma' is unpredictable in the flowers it delivers in color, form and completeness. Phylloclades are thick with large, often forward facing, claw-like dentation.
