End of the year flower

wazungy(Quebec Canada)December 31, 2005

After a very prolonged "bud stage" my thelocactus finally flowered today.

What a way to end the year!

What is your definition of a "vey long" bud stage? I have a Fercactus Latispinus that has been at bud stage for at least 3 weeks. I'm waiting for it to flower so I may share it with the folks here......

This plant had stalled with a bud, just barely above the surface of the skin for a number of months.
A change in lighting cycles snapped it into flowering.

Hey Waz, I got a couple of Thelos like that too, just waitin' for the right time, we've had an exceptionally wet and cool spring/summer so far, so I was thinking that it's the weather that delays the flowers... I'm sure these were flowering by Christmas last year, but are not even close this season.
