Echinopsis Maybe?

bikerdoc5968 Z6 SE MIApril 8, 2012

I've had this for a couple of years. It is a reliable flowering plant. I think it is in the genus Echinopsis but don't know the species. It does have a wonderful fragrance as long as you wait until midnight when it is fully opened. By noon the next day it begins to fade and by nightfall it has withered. These pictures are from last year and aren't my best work, but I think there is enough detail that someone might just recognize it... just maybe....

Howard it looks real close to Echinopsis melanopotamicum, but I am not positive. Look at the link below.


Here is a link that might be useful:

Thanks Glenn. The spines on E.M. look more elongated and curved.

I was thinking the same thing. But I think you are in the right family, several that have looked at today have been very close.
