Notocactus uebelmannianus, one of my favourites, Nancy.

One of my favorite too ... pretty flowers and a fast grower, and turns a nice purple in full sun ... your looks like it needs a bigger pot ...

Thanks, guys! I was very happy to see the purple flowers....my favorite color! Not to worry, Microthrix, it was repotted when it finished blooming. :)

Nancy,
I've always liked this cactus. I find it interesting that this cactus is one of a few that blooms purple. I guess I never really thought about it before reading that, but once you think about it, makes you feel a little special having a purple blooming cactus. :)

Planto, I agree! I don't usually have favorites, but this one might change that. :)
