After missing the bloom in early June, I was quite disappointed, but it appears the Trichocereus lobivia hybrid, commonly called a flying saucer cactus for its massive blooms, has decided to give me another one.
The Trichocereus lobivia hybrid put on quite the show last year, and I was beginning to think it wasn’t going to do anything this spring. Tonight, though, I finally spotted a bud - hopefully the first of several!
I hadn’t checked in on the growth of my Trichocereus lobivia hybrid, Flying Saucer or torch flower cactus, in a while, so here is the update: it has grown much more than I thought and the offsets are substantially larger. Hopefully a winter in the greenhouse will have it ready to bloom a lot next spring!
