I have one of those too but mine don't have so much white in the throats of the blooms as yours does.

I agree, very nice flowers on this species and the plant body is quite nice too.

ys I love its recurved spines!
The flowers are over far too quick-will I get a second showing later on?

Mine has more buds coming. It is possible yours might produce more buds.
The heat makes the flowers wither quicker.

Yes, I have to do that often too. Working at Blockbuster means lots of evenings and we finish at 10 as well although I'm doing all day shifts next week.

Our air con has gone on the blink too since the flood we had a few months ago and they won't fix it. Say it will cost too much....so we have to swelter.

Hi,
I have a different lobivia that also had a really large flower so I'll go ahead and post mine too.
I wonder if they all have such large flowers?
Mine is mostly one color tho.
