    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...
