A very small Echinopsis with a huge flower. I took this late one night last week to catch the flower at its peak. The cactus produces one flower each year, which probably wears it out! As the cactus gets older, it should produce more flowers each season.
A new Echinopsis in a new blue pot. I bought this Echinopsis hybrid last year for the yellow flowers, and the pot was a 2008 Christmas gift.
I can count on this small Rebutia to produce numerous bright orange flowers each year. It will have round after round of flowers until late July. I think it's making up for lost time and previous close calls.
The first buds on this Barrel Cactus are really fat, so the flowers should be larger than usual, as well as early. The cactus itself is all plumped out from our recent light rain. Barrels take in any moisture they receive to store for use during drought periods.
