    Here's the first one. This one produces large lily like yellow flower(wish I still had a photo).


    This came as "Mammilaria oaxa" if I remember correctly. Any chance of pollinating the flowers?

    S. purpurea and Drosera filiformis filiformis/ intermedia seeds waiting to sprout.

    1) Name escapes me - white flowers with yellow throat?

    2) only if you have another cactus. Not selfable

    Would it be possible or advisable to do a Mammilaria hybrid? I also have a M. matudae flowering.

    It could be done, afterall if I remember right oaxaca is a hybrid.
    The name of the first I think is Echinopsis sp. (?)

    I moved some pollen from the matudae to the oaxaca but nothing seems to have happened. Will try again.

    Here is the bloom of one of the un ID'ed cactus


    In the process of opening


    And another mystery cactus(I like this one)

    wow those are awsome. I wish i could grow them and get them to flower.
    how long do they last? (the flowers?)
    do they only open at night?

    Depends on the flowers. The small flower ones(matudae and oaxaca-I'll need to get a pic of matudae up as it is really cute looking) can bloom for weeks on end. Meanwhile, the big flowered ones the flowers only last 3 days at most. Thats why I take photos of them [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    The smaller flowers close at night and open in the morning. The large ones start opening sometime in the evening and then are fully open when you wake up in the morning. After being fried by the sun for some time they keel over.

    All the cacti we've got here are blooming or have bloomed this year. I don't do much for them-just put them in an area where they get lot of intense sun-put them in 50/50 playsand/soil, and let them go bone dry and then flood them when I feel sorry for them.

    They seem to like that. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]
