I have a few different coloured zygocactus plants growing in hanging pots situated underneath my high-set house in indirect SW sunlight. The delicate soft pastel white-pink flowers are always a definite favorite. They bloom at home during June-July, our tropical winter months. Location ~ Innisfail, Tropical Far North Queensland, Australia.
