Echinopsis blooms

This past Thursday night was time for the blooms to open - my first two Echinopsis for the season. Last year I don't think I had any blooms until August - this is a little bit earlier and may be a sign of good things to come. Hope to have many more in bloom through the month of August.

First one is a creamy white. Other one has kind of pinkish mid-stripes.

Still watching all the others very closely.

  • Glad to know the name of this cactus, it looks exactly like the one that I have. Mine blooms off and on from Spring through Summer.

  • My Echinopsis x 'Los Angeles' also bloomed today, with 10 flowers this time! This is the second flush this summer. I took some good photos, so I think I'll post mine tomorrow.
