WOW! I am stunned too. They sure are beautiful.


RE: Big Lobivia flowers!

I have one of those too but mine don't have so much white in the throats of the blooms as yours does.

I agree, very nice flowers on this species and the plant body is quite nice too.


RE: Big Lobivia flowers!/more?

ys I love its recurved spines!
The flowers are over far too quick-will I get a second showing later on?

RE: Big Lobivia flowers!

Mine has more buds coming. It is possible yours might produce more buds.
The heat makes the flowers wither quicker.


RE: Big Lobivia flowers!/

makes me wither n all!
Have to go to work this aftwernoon till 10pm,not looking forward to that!

RE: Big Lobivia flowers!

Yes, I have to do that often too. Working at Blockbuster means lots of evenings and we finish at 10 as well although I'm doing all day shifts next week.

Our air con has gone on the blink too since the flood we had a few months ago and they won't fix it. Say it will cost too we have to swelter.


RE: Big Lobivia flowers!

I have a different lobivia that also had a really large flower so I'll go ahead and post mine too.
I wonder if they all have such large flowers?
Mine is mostly one color tho.
