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:

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.

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).

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
