I tip my hat to you. I was trying to see if it will open up just a little more..ah, but it ends that way and closes up for the night, then starts the sequence again the following day..

It is still windy but much warmer now, adjusted the container a bit to get more sun and the cacti opened up its bloom a little more today! Hurray!

I think this cacti is really relishing the weather warm up as we expect to hit 90's..still in bloom and its bloom has gone wider, a clearer view inside the bloom.
