Flowering Cactus

Look what I found on my Cactus last night. The one on the left is in full bloom, the one on the right is as it was opening.
I have been told this is a Echinopsis Eyresii. Commenly referred to as the Pink Easter Lily Cactus.
It is a beautiful flower but the bloom only last one night. I brought it indoors so it may last an extra day. I h ave had this plant for a long time and has bloomed once every year for the past ten years


  1. I just love it when cacti bloom...it always seems so miraculous that something so beautiful can come from a plant that is covered in spines! It's too bad the flowers don't last longer, though!



  2. Thanks for sharing. This is something I rarely see. Beautiful.

  3. Awesome! Thanks for posting pictures.

  4. I have never had a flowering cactus, but it always amazes me that these gorgeous blooms pop up out of a slightly homely and prickly chunk of cactus : )!!
