Beautiful flower Fero, Echinocereus are favourites of mine as well.

Few buds, but not flowers at the moment.

I have Echinocereus viridiflorus in flower at the moment... it's a nice plant with a marvellous scent to boot.

That's lovely Christian, it's a real bonus when flowers have a lovely scent, I enter the greenhouse and you know something is flowering before you've even spotted it.
Very colourfull spines (tu)

It's great when the outdoor ones flower. I regularly get buds on E. triglochidiatus, but need some luck with the weather for them to open properly. E. viridiflorus used to be more reliable, but I lost it a couple of years ago and haven't planted out another one yet.

I wonder would anybody be able to identify this one for me.
I guess it was grown from seed in 1999 but this is the first time it has flowered.
Label was lost but I do have some possible names from the seed list to cross check if somebody can guess.
