Hello! It’s finally the 2018 blooming season for Echinopsis here in Florida in the US. I’m glad to kick off the new year of posting with one of the most famous of all Echinopsis … “Flying Saucer,” a hybrid developed by the great Hans Britsch. Each of these massive beauties is almost 23 cm/9” in diameter once opened. Each clips shows over 2 days of flower blooming/wilting compressed into a few seconds. Four flowers bloom the first evening and then more do the second evening. Hope you are well and very best wishes to you all! #Echinopsis #FlyingSaucer #Trichocereus #EchinopsisFreak #flower #bloomen #fleur #flores #cactus #kactus #timelapse

Hi there! Today we have six amazing “Icon” flowers in bloom. Each is 5”/13cm across once open. And amazing combination of pinks and whites in a uniquely shaped flower. For those of you in the US, best wishes for a wonderful Thanksgiving. And to all best wishes for a wonderful rest of November. (As blooming season is over, I’m nursing a few remaining new captures so I will have content to post over the coming months until blooming restarts next April.) #cactus #echinopsis #icon #flower #fleur #flores #blumen #timelapse

Zombie cacti? Yes. Complete with a clip of spooky music 🔊from O$P$. Yes, it’s zombie-lapse time of year 🎃 when cacti flowers come back from the dead. A little over the top. Okay, a lot over the top. But hope you enjoy anyway. Have a great week! #zombie #halloween #zombielapse #cactus #echinopsis #timelapse #O$P$ #flower #fleur #flores #blumen #spooky

Freaky. Yes. Freaky. Want to so why I’ve nicknamed Echinopsis flowers ‘Freaky Flowers’? Check out the behavior of these ‘June Noon’ flowers as they wilt. They literally roll up. These flowers are 15 cm/5” wide at full bloom and then roll up to about 4 cm/1.5” across at the end of the wilting process. Each clips shows about 36 hours of wilting action smooshed into a few seconds. 🔊sound on for a clip from The Singularity is Near by O$P$ that I think matches the freakiness of the flowers. Have a great week coming up! #Freaky #freakyflowers #echinopsisfreak #echinopsis #trichocereus #cactus #timelapse #flower #fleur #flores #blumen #june #noon

Hello from windy/rainy Florida. Here in Jacksonville we’re getting just a small taste of the terrible stuff Irma is doing on the other side of the state. Thoughts and prayers to all impacted by Irma and Harvey. Today we have 7 ‘Madame Pele’ flowers blooming as seen from two angles. These incredible flowers are 13 cm/5” in diameter once fully open. I’ve also included a shot of the EchinopsisFreak cacti collection hunkering down in the garage to ride out Irma. Moving them all in and out of the garage makes me think seriously about trying to get a grip on my cacti addiction. Best to you and, again, very best to all those in FL and TX. #cactus #flower #timelapse #echinopsis #madame #pele #fleur #blumen #flores
