Epiphyllum Cactus Flower

Cactus springs surprise
Red desert flower bursts forth
Large as dinner plate

  2. I second Dale’s wow. I’ve never seen a cactus flower that large except perhaps at a botanical garden. I feel congratulations are in order. Beautiful, Sarah–what a green thumb you must have, even in the case of succulents/cacti!

    • Succulents and cacti adore my south-facing front room. They’re very easy to look after in that they need very little looking after. You’re not meant to water them at all from October through to March, which is good. Even in the summer, they only need a few drops of water about once a fortnight.
      There’s a second flower coming on that cacti in the picture, this time from the top of the plant. Very exciting.


  3. Such a wonderful show! I’ve never seen such a big cactus bloom, Sarah. You must be doing something right. 🙂 A lovely haiku tribute to it.

  4. How gorgeous this is Sarah! I’ve never managed to grow cacti for some strange reason, so it’s lovely to see yours 🙂 xxxx

    • I bet you can grow plenty of other beautiful houseplants, though, Sherri. My present house is not too kind to anything other than cacti. When I moved here, I brought a whole load of beautiful African violets with me, which it killed off one by one D: The house has a South-North elevation, so the rooms are either too sunny, or not sunny enough. I’ve come to the conclusion that African violets prefer the less extreme East-West elevation. Unfortunately, I don’t have any suitable easterly or westerly window sills. Glad you liked my flower. It certainly gave me lots of pleasure, although it is past its best now, but looking forward to the next one, which is a tiny baby bud at the moment 🙂 xxxx

  6. Wow, I have a windowsill of cacti in the kitchen but nothing so dramatic as this one!

  7. This really was a huge blossom and had to look twice to believe it was real, Sarah.
