It has been a bit of a challenge posting in this past week as we are in the process of moving. Always a fun task, not!
Following on from my last post, I can excitedly report that two more of my Cacti and Succulents have flowered in the past week.
The first is an Aylosteria pulvinosa. It is only a small Cacti plant measuring 5cm across and has had pups and the flowers in the image are (apart from that flowered last week) the first full crop of flowers that this plant has produced.
The second plant to flower this week (in fact it bloomed today), is an Epiphyllum Hybrid which is sometimes mistakenly called a ‘Dragonfruit’ plant, according to the Cacti and Succulent Association of Australia. I joined the Society nearly 12 months ago and am learning a lot.
I love the rich, Red colour of this flower which really contrasts well against the Green foliage of the plant.
Two more beauties from my collection that have flowered so far in Spring.
I am so looking forward to the rest of Spring and Summer!
