  So this is not a fluke that something so small is already blooming?

3 of 9 all similar in size put out a single bloom so I guess not a fluke. They were planted in the garden last spring so they have gone one winter unprotected. Here's another (I promise it is a different one  8) )

A grower in Reno has had a few Escobaria vivpara do the same thing! Bloom on three year old seedlings. They may be nickle sized plants. He had them growing in an unheated green house. It surprised me too at the time!!
