P. magnifica has bloomed about once a month since May, its best year yet. I have a pair of these in the same container. They are the same age and size, and being in the same pot, they get equal treatment. However, the other one has only managed one flowering. Go figure.
This is the first flower for this G. schickendantzii, and I'm surprised at its size! The cactus is larger than it appears in this photo. It's in an eight inch pot, and the flower is almost as large as the cactus. G. schicendantzii flowers can range from white to red. As I've mentioned before, it seems when a flower color is in question--I always seem to get yellow! This flower has lasted four days so far, and it still looks good. That makes up for any disappointment that the flower color wasn't white or pink.
