This has been ready to pop for a week. What a nice surprise to find this afternoon when I returned from walking the dog.

Gorgeous bloom! Not bad spines either! Thelocactus are my 2nd fave cactus blooms. :)

Nice bloom. The blooms get bigger as the plant gets bigger. I see you like clay pots to. Very humid where I live so it helps them dry out after spring rains.

JoJo,

It's in a three-inch pot.

Thank you. :-)
It's amazing how the flower can be bigger than the cactus. It's beautiful!
