My little Echinopsis seminudus had a bloom that opened this morning. She throws maybe a handful per year, and they are absurdly tall and trumpeting for a little round ball of a cactus – see here
We brought it to the breakfast table on the verandah to enjoy, and the bees enjoyed burrowing in too. The luminous and quite opalescent blooms of this cactus open in the wee hours, and are totally withered and shrivelled by evening.
