Hi everyone. I'm April from California and I love succulents and cactuses.

Here's a picture of my cactus that's been such a flower tease. Still waiting to see those blooms...

Hi April, welcome to NGA! Those blooms will be worth the wait! When it blooms please do share some photos with us! Do you have an ID on it? I'm not familiar with this one.

Welcome April. Perfect timing on your post. I just took this photo of mine in bloom today! I got this little cutie at Walmart a couple of weeks ago. It had already set buds and one has been opening during the day and closing at night for a few days now.
