This delicate cactus flower only appears once a year in the evening and dies the very next day!
white, cactus, flower
Is this cactus found in Australia or somewhere else? Any photos of the cactus body….the bloom is so pretty!
It is not an Australian native (I don’t think there are any cactii native of Australia). It is not tall like Queen of the Night Cactus. I’ll upload another pic for you. :-)
Possibly? Rebutia narvaecensis
Definitely Rebutia but which subspecies? there are so many of them, so I’ll accept your suggestion narvaecensis. Merci beaucoup Carla!
Wish I could find more specific in looks……..never realize how MANY there are in that family!
The flower is too large for a Rebutia, and Rebutias are not night flowering. its more likely an Echinopsis.There are many many hybrids in this genus so a full ID might be hard.Hope that helps a little !
I think Etwin is right and it’s Echinopsis. This link explains that they are a hybrid between a white nocturnal and colored diurnal cactus. They open in the evening and bloom for 24 hours. Because they’re a hybrid there are many types but some have the wider more rounded petals that yours has. http://cactusshop.co.uk/acatalog/info_363.html http://waterwhendry.blogspot.com/2007_10_01_arc...
Thank you all for all the research! And after checking all this info I agree that it is Echinopsis hybrid!
