I have been taking photos of the buds as they grew and then finally this afternoon I knew the one was going to pop open and it did, along with two other plants. I have held off asking for an ID on the first plant until it bloomed. Can any one help? The next post will have the other flowers. Thanks, Xuling

The first two pics are Notocactus muricatus and the next two are Gymnocalycium denudatum 'Jan Suba'. The Jan Suba was so beautifully white with the naked eye that it felt virginal; I am sorry that the photo couldn't get this purity. Xuling

Your first one looks like Notocactus roseoluteus to me.

Yup that sounds right to me, too. I have to say I love the flowers on that species. The almost metallic yellow & rose pink is like a morning aurora. They're not huge; they're not deeply saturated; but they're subtle & luminous.

Thank you both for the information. And amanzed, your description is very accurate. I took some more photos today of the flower and it is just exquisite. Some day,hopefully soon, I will pick out and edit photos of all the new flowers that bloomed over the last few months and some that have yet to open (some of those I think are common ordinary plants but I don't know their names!!, a very typical situation for me since I have about 320 C/S, not counting the ones that died). And now I have a new folder and name tag!! Yea for all the help on DG. Xuling

Here is a photo I took after the above response. I like it not only for the flower but also I like the shadow of the flower and bud on the rock. Xuling
