Cacti Bloom twenty thirteen
The cholla is really growing well each year and all thanks to you giving me the starts. It's all well with me as I share in the other post.
Wow Perko, you sure have a lot going on in your garden! Beautiful flowers and nice healthy plants too!
Beautiful plants, flowers and photographs perko! I am totally impressed.
It looks like there is a little scorpion on the petal of the red Echinoblivia on lower left.
I have both of these plants but mine are not blooming--darn it!
The rain helped some of my echinopsi to bloom too. E. x 'Yes!', E. x 'Roxanna', E. huasha 1, and E. huasha 2.
The plant in the last picture - E. huasha 2 - is the mother plant of the plant in the 3rd picture - E. huasha 1 - I have no idea why the flowers on the mother plant are so pale, when I got the plant the flowers were a nice shade of red, but the last 2-3 years of so the flowers have been looking like that, I treat both plants the same, same water, same fertilizer, the mother plant gets sun till about 1 PM from early morning on, while the other plants gets sun later in the morning, but also is in the sun a few hours longer, so in terms of sun hours they are about the same also.
Nancy, since I am actually a Dutchman, and I do not yet have the E. x 'Dutchman's Gold' I was wondering if you'd be interested in trading a cutting of that Dutchman's Gold plant, which is beautiful. I have a well rooted small cutting of the E. x 'Roxanna' and I have several of the E. x 'Yes!'. I have many other Echinopsis some of which are prolific puppers. If you do d-mail me, otherwise I will have to go find my gold somewhere else ;-)
