The first flower to open on this Eriosyce kunzei ‘multicolor’, is just the florescent pink color I expected! To read more about this water sensitive cactus, see my previous post about it.

For each petal on the shamrock

This brings a wish your way--

Good health, good luck, and happiness

For today and every day.

Aiyana, what fabulous color!

Happy St. Paddy's Day to you -- and I love the color of the cactus bloom! Fluorescent brights are my favorite in the garden.

Alright Aiyana,
I simply have to ask. HOW MANY cacti do you live with? They are all so wonderful.

What Beautiful Color contrasts! Happy St. Paddy's day! :-)

Well, first of all, let me pull myself up out of the mud..., since on your last post I called this cactus "homely", but it surely moved from an ugly duckling to a swan! Amazing how these cactus can have such beautiful blooms! Congratulations on this one!

Hi Aiyana,

It's exactly what you predicted - the colour is wonderful.

Happy St. Patrick's Day to you!

Thanks for the comments! In answer to Barbara's question, I have about 175 different varieties of cacti and about 75 succulents. My place is sort of a mini botanical garden. I really need to stop this obsession--it's getting a bit hard to manage.
