My first Echinopsis Schick of the season.

Post by Cidermanrolls » Tue May 21, 2019 8:45 pm

Mine are a little later than others’ but here is Nocturne, my first Schick this year. The plant is scruffy and will be used for pupping, but the flower is pretty.

Envious!
Continuing a journey of discovery as I grow cactus seeds and offsets, and discover all kinds of wonderful plants in Cactus Nurseries. Just love Echinopsis, Lithops, Aeoniums and Gymnocalycium .... and....and .... now discovering Rebutia (thought I'd never bother having lost one a winter ago) and Sulcorebutia and Aylostera .... from where did those Echinocereus plants arrive?

It’s not the biggest of Schick flowers. Probably about 4” across.
Fangri La followed two days after. This is a slightly larger flower.
