Cereus pernambucensis bloomed

I don't know how I could have forgotten to post the photo of the flower after all that waiting and anticipation, although I wasn't even here to see it flower.

The other buds aborted, so I guess I am not looking forward to another anytime soon. Now I just need to plant the head in a pot since it has started to root, and I should be able to enjoy watching it grow and hopefully bloom again soon enough.

I should really get it planted out now while it is raining, so it can get its roots established fairly quickly. Maybe I will take that on tomorrow (if the rain eases up long enough, that is).


  • Very nice Jade. I'm really envious of your collection.

  • Dear Jade,

    That "unknown succulent" that you´ve posted, with the yellow small flowers, is a kalanchoe. They are very popular in Brasil.

  • I love that optimistic spirit of yours! You have a nice collection of plants from seed. I have planted a few varieties of seed, for the 1st time. The little sprouts are......cute! Especially those little cat-headed or owl-headed Ferocactus gracilis var. coloratus, which I noticed you have also raised. Others I have
    sprouted include:
    Astrophytum hybrids; Cleistocactus
    strausii; Echinofossulocactus hybrids; Echinocactus polycephalus;
    Echinocereus dasyacanthus; Lapadaria margaretae; and various Yuccas. I hope they all survive, since this is my first try from seed.
