10/10 for getting it to flower. I have had mine forever and it steadfastly refuses to flower. Can I have a copy of the image to place in my small Opuntia talk ? Full credit and much praise will go with it.

I'm with Mike on this one, neither of my two plants have flowered, well done Chris and I like the flower colour, is the photo a good colour match, only I always thought bulbispina flowers were yellow?

Ray the colour did look a little more yellow in real life but I do wonder if it opened fully it like a lot of flowers would have changed shade a bit more
