Cactus Flower

This one bloomed just last Thursday early morning. I noticed the flower bud sticking out at the annex of the cactus plant - never realised or ever hoped that this one would flower in my balcony.

By the time I got my camera, the flower had already spend.(last pic) Well, At least I can still be satisfied with some remnant of what it would be called a glorious flower.
Regardless, I manage to snap some pictures from my handphone camera but the quality is not so satisfying.

I could say, this one is almost 7 years old & finally it had decided to bloom after all those years - Amazing.


  1. That's a wonderful cactus! Congratulations on getting it to flower. My cactus are so short compared to yours!

  2. What a delicate beauty amidst the harsh looking thorny greens!

  3. Congrats! How wonderful. I hope the plant is going to bloom again for you :-D

  4. Beautiful bloom! Is this one of the night-blooming cacti (such as Echinopsis spp. or Trichocereus spp.)? The blooms look so familiar.

  5. That's wonderful! How long did it bloom? Does it have any fragrance?

  6. It is such a beautiful flower! It is shame that a flower this beautiful only lasts so short. But probably that is why it is so precious!

  7. How lovely. I am glad that you did have a camera to capture this beautiful, short-lived flower.

  8. Aaron - these are about 7 years plus. I guess they grow taller by the years.

    Floridagirl - yes, these are night bloomers -they seemed to be at optimum by early morning but tend to fade by the sunrise.

    Belle - I guess - one day, Didn't check the fragrance though, by the time Im back from work - its all over.

    Thanks everyone for your lovely comments.
