This is a picture of my cacti in flower - this is a yearly event - there are two plants here with eight blooms in total.  Flowers are still coming even now but not in such great numbers.

What a cool colour for a cactus - the only one that I have which has ever flowered is a searing orange, and my friend has a couple which are shocking pink. None of them have ever had more than 2 flowers at the same time - yours is lovely.

The cacti stay in the greenhouse all year round, it is unheated.  They obviously love the fluctuations in temperature.  The flowers only last a day but even so, it's worth it.
