Cacti make a misjudgement of the season from time to time.
An ariocarpus kotschoubeyanus was in flower.
It is the mid of summer in here. Since ariocarpus are in flower in autumn, the cactus misjudge the season.
Two frailea castaneas were in flower yesterday.
They normally do not open flower. Flowering buds turn to fruits directly.
Since yesterday was very hot, they opened flowes, I think.
The photo is one of them.
An astrophytum hybrid, fukuryu hannya was in flower.
I got seeds from my friend and the history of seeds is unknown.
Cacti propagated from the seeds show various forms.
This one shows the character of ornatum.
Many asterias were in flower yesterday.
Asterias are in flower several times between spring and autumn.
They all are in flower same day as like communicate each other "Let's start".
The photo is one of them, a super kabuto.
An astrophytum myriostigma was in flower yesterday.
It was 1st flowering for the cactus.
The myristigma has 3 ribs.
The body shape is very stable and no change of rib numbers at all but the growing speed is very slow by unkown reason.
