Hi all

This Notocactus flowered for the first time late October. It was a nice surprise to ee the yellow flower as I already have the purple flowered form.

Very nice Michelle!! October sounds right for their blooms as I read they are late summer to early autumn bloomers. My four did not bloom this year. I anxiously await NEXT year!! :-) I guess it is odd that it bloomed for you in spring, eh?

Hi Guys

Thank you all for your kind words.

Bill - My other plant with the purple flower decided to flower even earlier in september.

CP - Yes I consider myself very lucky because I purchased this plant without knowing which flower colour it would produce.

It was a nice picture, while it lasted! (I only get the red 'x' today). I've seen this also listed as N. crassigibbus/Parodia crassigibba.
