    That is a lovely bloom, Jeff. Do you have a name for it? It looks very much like the one I posted last year showing the plant with 17 blooms.

    I am posting another picture of it , this time with a measuring tape to show the size of the blooms. I hope someone may be able to ID it this time.

    @Howard: Nice cacti and blooms.

    Mine is a Tricocereus grandiflorus hybrid where yours is an Echinopsis hybrid.

    I bet the cat would learn quickly not to rub on a cactus! Gorgeous pictures!! What species is the very first picture? I have one little Cardon cactus that I started from seed about 7 months ago. It's about 1 1/2" tall right now and grows to 60', so one day I'll have to take it to my aunt's in AZ or something and plant it.

    Thanks Jeff for IDing my cactus.I have about a dozen cacti but most have small flowers or no flowers at all.The Echinopsis though is very free flowering averaging 4 - 5 times a year.

    Hahahaha! I laughed out loud for real. The cacti are super cool here.
