Cactus flower anti-climax

Well, this is as far as it opened. These picture are from about 6am yesterday morning. By 9am, the flower had closed back up, tightly, and has not opened again. I was hoping it would open again in the evening or early this morning, but no.

That was a lot of work and waiting for a funny little flower that didn't do much.

There are about a dozen more buds in various stages of development on this plant.

  1. Well, maybe one of the other ones will do better! I have this happen a lot with some of my hibiscus blooms...I always wonder why. I bet the others will open wide!!!


Reluctantly, I have reinstated the word verification for all comments on this blog. I don't like it any more than you do, but the rate of breakthrough spam was even more annoying. Thanks for understanding.
