I couldn't even say that if I tried! Thank you. Is that the name of the cactus? I was seeing more and more fuzzy black things on my plant, and started referring to them as 'cactus zits' (why, I have no idea). I went outside this morning, and saw this and was completely shocked! This picture was just taken in the evening, and had no idea it would open up to be so pretty.

Those are flower buds. Several genera(cleistocactus, parodia, echinopsis, eulychinia) have buds covered in hair...

Congratulations on your beautiful blooms, Debbie! This is one of my favorite cacti. I have a range of colors of it in my Arizona garden. It's spectacular when it blooms, and mine re-blooms several times during the year. I don't give them much water and they are happy with the neglect.
