Notocactus horstii purpureus flower opened!

So I'm a little late with the news - this happened about two weeks ago (photo was taken on November 17) but I've just been delinquent in getting the photos uploaded so that I can show it off. Actually, both buds have opened without any difficulties except that they refused to open fully. I am told that this plant is a spring bloomer so I am hoping that I will see more action in another few months after the "winter" is over.

I can't explain how good it feels to have grown this from seed to such a nice flowering plant! I'm now looking forward to more blooms from my babies during the next season.
