I have a cactus grown from a small piece my sister gave me. She got a piece from her father-in-law, so we are keeping it going in the family. It’s taken years for the plant to get large. Every spring I put it outside – it just loves rain and summer sun.
This year it is incredibly beautiful. It often has one or two blooms, but this year, more than half a dozen. And it would have been more, except that I brushed off two or three buds moving it around. They are super fragile, and fall off almost by themselves.
The flowers are 5 inches or more in diameter. They will only last a few days. It’s fairly easy to root new pieces of cactus with some rooting compound.
I have no idea what kind of cactus it is. Does anyone know?
