Echinopsis 'Blaze'

Remarkable how this offset has rooted, grown and produced a flower so quickly from such a tiny plant.

This flowered in the night. I missed the opportunity to make a video, but there is another flower developing.
Endeavouring to grow Aeoniums, Aylostera, Echinocereus, Echinopsis, Gymnocalycium, Lithops, Matucana, Rebutia, and Sulcorebutia.
Currently being wooed by Haworthia, attempting hybridisation, and enticed by Mesembs.

Mine's produced two flowers and I've missed getting a photo of them. Can't wait to grow it to a big plant with lots of flowers!

Yes, definitely one of the better hybrids.
