Since I'm in a greenhouse of closed cacti flowers. Here's one I took earlier, in a 2" pot.

Nice to see someone else gives their Thelocactus a red tinge over the winter, I thought it was just me.

Nice one, John. I have three hex buds waiting to open but the lack of decent sunshine and warmth is holding them back.

Ray, I believe anything not able to survive my regime was not a succulent anyway 🤣
Rod, I don't know about warmth, mine have been several degrees below zero many times this winter. Maybe mine see the Sun and know it is time to get started.

Always a nice plant to see flowering, mine are still a little way off.
I aim for heating to +5 deg.C but don't get much direct light on the greenhouse between November and early March which delays a lot of my plants.
Regards Keith.

Quite surprised to see mine in flower today, still mainly overcast and wet.

At what age/size do Thelocacti (should this be plural at all?) hexaedrophorus flower usually?
