Still waiting for the flowers

Category: On my windowsill | Posted: Sat Aug 29, 2009 12:31 pm

These two plants always have buds and flowers, but they are very nice anyway :)

But the plant I am waiting for right now is this little fellow.

Aztekium ritteri

It's only 15 mm wide and grown from seed since 1994. The flowers looks like they going to be pink, but they are white. This one has flowered before, but only with one flower at the time...

Oh do show us another photograph when your Aztekium ritteri opens up fully won't you?

That's amazing...only 15mm since 1994? You must be very patient! I'd love to see the bloom when it opens too.

Lovely! I am just beginning to enjoy succulents and cactus of my own. Yours are truly exceptional.
I like the fact that I can have something that doesn't out grow its space in my house. :)

There are a lot of small cacti that never outgrow a 3" pot :D
The flower is the reward for the patient :)
