Nice pics Bill. I was just out in Arizona and was amazed at how beautiful the desert can be. The first couple of days it was pretty bland, but then they had the first rains of the monsoon season. Within hours everything opened up. It was something to see.
Those are awsum,Bill. I don't think I've ever seen flowers like any of those on cactus before.
Those are beautiful. I'll admit, I'm not a big cactus fan, but those flowers are enough to tempt me to give some a try. Really nice; thanks for sharing.
thanks bill, can you point me to a site with christmas cactus family taxonomy? ive got one that blooms 3x a year, never at christmas, pink and white, trying to fig out what it is???
thos are cool are they nite bloomers.these are on my deck and they bloom at nite 2 or 3 times a year.
Bayoubear: You can Google Schlumbergera Bridgesii, and get all your answers there. The Schlumbergera genus bloom at different times, not necessarily just at Christmas, though they are nicknamed 'Christmas Cactus'. They also come in a wide range of colors.
poisonpits: Most of my cactus of the Echinopsis genus as your's is, do indeed open at night, and are usually gone by noon the next day. Occasionally some of the early spring Echinopsis bloomers will last a day and a half to two days. Many other cactus blooms last several days to a week, but a couple of days is the norm for most.
Beautiful flowers, thanks.
