Worth the wait; a few of my pretties

My Echinopsis hybrids are blooming a little earlier this year, probably because I put them outside earlier.

The top one is Schick "Napea" and the other is Schick "Oaxaca" The napea flowers are smaller this year, but this plant likes to bloom.

Oh my!!! Beautiful!!! Yellow center is striking!
I'm not having much flowers from my gang. Over 60% of the echis did not bloom this year. May I ask, how tall is your plant?

Thanks everyone: here's another from Mexican Hat (unnamed). This guy must have a lot of Lobivia in him because it etoiliates like crazy. Getting ready to chop it in half.

Luv daisies: These are Echinopsis hybrids, the two in the first picture are Schick hybrids and they are available at Huntington Gardens, but they are $7.50 each and many come very small.

I got these two from Arizona Cactus Sales and they were about $15. You can also look on Ebay. Also Altmans is selling plants at the BBS that they call Rainbow Bursts, but since they are unnamed, you'll be taking a chance. There are also Paramount hybrids, these are the parents of the Schick hybrids so the flowers aren't as spectacular.

Aztcqn: the napea is about 6" tall; I've had it for about 5 years, it started blooming after the first year. The other one is in a 4" pot. I hardly get any blooms in my 3" sized plants unless it happened to come with a bud. And one of my big Tricho's finally has buds on it and I've had that one for 9 years. They are baking in the sun for a good part of the day and I guess that's what it wanted. The bigger E hybrids get more full sun than the small guys, but my vertical pumpkin patch is about to block the morning sun. (I planted the pumpkins in a dog pen and the leaves are crawling up the walls :-)

Why don't you email the Huntington Gardens for some tips?
