Hi, all.

I have been VERY busy, and not posting. I HAVE, however, been following everyone's posts. I thought I should check in today, and share my Ferocactus rectispinus, which is blooming for the first time since I have had it. This is the biggest Fero. flower I have ever seen, and very satiny and shiny!

Thanks for checking it out!

Katie

Hello Katie!

Very interesting plant with its completely yellow flower. As I remember all of the rectis I seen have yellow flower with reddish throat.

Yeah, yeah, yeah. :roll: I am sure it has more to do with the fact that it is languishing in a pot, rather than flourishing in the warm California sun. :D
