Love the size of your first pic and the profusion of blooms on it!

Perth, United Kingdom(Zone 7b)

Great flowers, I like the Eriosyce the best though the Echinopsis is a fine sighjt also.
Perkos, you should put your Echinopsis flower pictures on the backlit photos forum, they'd be highly appreciated there:

I was just looking at that ice plant and thinking of ordering some. Very nice!

Prosper, TX(Zone 8a)

Well I just ordered over 1000 cactus seeds for nearly 300 varieties/species all around. Am really wanting to branch out and start up my own Cacti farm.

Decatur, GA

I have as small addition to make here. Not so impressive as some others but still pretty.
Who let the dogs out?

Two of my favourites blooming at the moment. Got the photos in the sun as it's pouring with rain today! (Pity as the Olympic torch relay is passing through my district).

Finally got a glimpse of my F. hamatacanthus blooming.

Mine continues to make new blooms. I don't have any other cacti that rebloom as much.

Cannelton, IN(Zone 6b)

Here's one I missed (Epi. hookerii). SOB, SOB I didn't even know it had a bloom on it.

Los Angeles, CA(Zone 10a)

It's so easy to miss those Epiphyllum blooms.

Arlington, TX

Next time smashed. I have one (not sure about the ID) and it has never bloomed. Too little light I think.

I found it while moving plants around because of an approaching severe thunder storm. This one kind of made up for it . I took these pictures this morning before going to work. I forget the name, but it was labeled Echinopsis dominos.

That's right smashed.

Baja California, Mexico(Zone 11)

Echinopsis spachiana in the early morning and Cereus at midnight (these don't last very long).

Nice! baja. I have the E. spachiana and several other 'Trichocereus' type Echinopsis and can't get them to bloom in my area. Maybe some day I'll figure it out.

Sun Lakes, AZ(Zone 9a)

Echinopsis dominos is a retail name for Echinopsis subdenudata. That was a nice surprise Gary!

Brooklyn, NY(Zone 7b)

my last flush of three bloos was on July 27th... now only less than a month later ... there's another bunch of 6 flowers... I could really enjoy a daily boquet every month or so from it..

That's what I like about these GordonHawk. They bloom on and off all summer long. Here's one getting ready to bloom tonight and I have three other plants with three blooms coming on.

Brooklyn, NY(Zone 7b)

yes.. you'll have that one in the morning for sure.. they are alot of fun..

Cannelton, IN(Zone 6b)

I've never had this happen before. One bloom yesterday, one today, and one tomorrow night. I've never had them bloom this close together.

Aloe harlana. The spider is keeping the bugs off the blooms for me.

Here be my lil F. aurantiaca

Thumbnail by perkoschilefarm
Cannelton, IN(Zone 6b)

Mine is trying to bloom even with the temps in the 30's this past week. They didn't do very well this year.

Thumbnail by smashedcactus
Sun Lakes, AZ(Zone 9a)

I don't think they like it cold and wet at all. They will probably rot. Sorry! Of course, I'm not an expert. I can not keep them alive even here where it is dry and does not freeze. Wish I could because I love the flowers.

Cannelton, IN(Zone 6b)

I usually bring them in by now. there's not much to save this year, so I left them out. Just watching to see how long they will last. Your's looks real healthy perkoschilefarm.

Prosper, TX(Zone 8a)

Yes this bunch is nearing 2 years old and has more than doubled in size. I grow them outside late Spring through mid Fall and indoors in Winter. Seems to be working ok for the time being and we'll see what becomes this next year.
