Easter Lily Cactus

The Easter Lily Cactus (Echinopis Oxygona) blooms last just one day normally. Unless your plant has multiple blooms that open on different days, you only have one chance at a lighting situation. Trying to match Full Bloom with Day Old bloom proved harder than I thought.

Cactus flowers always amaze me. Such beauty from such a prickly source.

Easter Lily Cactus

They are real but unfortunately, they last only one day! Here is the plant with all stalks in bloom at the same time.
