Notocactus horstii purpureus - July 15, 2008

The last post for today, to bring me "up to date" is the flower that was opened this week on my Notocactus horstii purpureus. I consider this to be one of my greatest successes, having grown this from seed, and it is the ONLY Notocactus in my collection that blooms. It has been blooming steadily since April, one or two flowers at a time, but most of the time the flowers don't open fully, or they open while I'm at work!
