PostSubject: spring cacti flowers   Tue Sep 16, 2008 7:19 pm

Yesterday I saw my first Trichocereus flower of the season. It was a brilliant white flower almost bigger than the plant it came from, T. schickendantzii. I took some photos but I'm currently using dial up and I'll have to wait till I get into town to upload.
Also where I'm staying there was a flowering Notocactus and some Mamms.
Anyone else with flowering plants yet? It'd be great to see some photos.

cool prier. Cool that's early.
no flowers for me yet, other than a renegade Mamm carmenae that flowers all winter.
buds though, on echinocereus, turbs, toumeya, mamm mystax, echinopsis and that's it.

Very nice. I think you missed and "H" near the beginning of the latter, no matter, these are truly drool worthy and we know what you mean anyway...I'm pretty sure looking at amazing cacti is part of prier's job description, now it's time for us to bow before the master cheers

Trig I think the most correct name for it is Turbinicarpus schmiedickeanus
ssp. Rioverdensis. Yeah its a nice turb, I like the flat tubercles.



And another pic from today whilst i'm here:

Melocactus Peruvianus

Mamm. carmenae white spined form:


this species was once extremely rare in collections, near impossible to obtain and one of the ultimate prizes of the cactus grower. now it is somewhat common commercially. this specimen has unusual pink stripes through the flowers too, indicating it could be x laui. the type species has yellowish spines and white/cream flowers.
