Mammillaria beneckei

I had two prospects for the plant of the week, and both of them held out on me by NOT blooming on the weekend. However, the Mammillaria beneckei finally opened up two flowers on Monday morning and has opened one more each day since. Seems as though the bloom lasts only ONE day - opens at the crack of dawn and closes before the afternoon ends.

There are more buds coming, so I think I will need to water more with Bloom Booster to get the greatest effect. Mine has never done it, but I know it can, even in this climate.
