|Very nice! So are both the green and red buds blooms? |
Here is a photo of my baby cactus that you gave me, I thought I lost them, since I've never grown cacti before and wasn't sure what to do for them...anyway, they seem to like the chicken wire thingy that I set up for them to stay upright!
Thanks for all the buds Mark!!

|Thanks man! I do appreciate your giving them to me! And that there are several different types! |

|WOW you have a lot of buds.|
Do you know what color the blooms will be?
I have three color blooms red, yellow and a peach. I love the big blooms they look like peony.

|Cinta, I'm assuming you're asking Mark about bloom color...he gave me the chunks of cacti, which is why I shared the photo - I know mine aren't really looking great - I was amazed that they were alive!!! I will surely post photos of the blooms if these are indeed blooms, and like the little jumpy yellow emoticon - I'll be jumping up and down with joy when I first notice the open blooms |

|no this climate is not good to flowers of cactus. However if i ever stopped hacking my cactus up they might flower. I have had one flower once in the 4 years i have been growing them.|

|Alright, well then, I'm guessing these buds are little babies growing!! That's exciting! I plan on leaving them all summer, unless they get too large, then I'm going to separate into the different types, I think I have 3. And continue growing them! Its quite exciting starting from so little! |

|Yes I was asking Mark if he knew bloom colors. I have a hardy cactus succulent garden and I am trying to get different color blooms in the area. It is a conversation garden that cactus can live under a foot of snow. |
If they are hardy and grown outside all year I have seen blooms in second year. They only last a day but when you get a big patch it is the same as a daylily you have so many buds that you have blooms daily for a few weeks.
The blooms are large the size of a daylily bloom on these two.

|Nice, really nice|

|Very lovely Cinta!! They look fake! Okay, so I'm really hoping to get some flowers in a year or so! I've never grown cactus, so I feel like a new parent! |

|I really do need to post some of the pics I've been taking at the Desert Botanical Garden - is there a way to download pics from an iPhone or can you only email them to yourself?|
In the end, only kindness matters.
Science is not the answer, it is the question.

|they claim that in ios 6 and up you can upload media to html. Have you tried clicking on the upload an image button from your phone? |
also http://support.apple.com/kb/HT... has several methods to transfer media.
also i use dropbox on my android phone, it automatically syncs my photos between my phone and pc when on wifi.
it is also on iphones https://www.dropbox.com/iphone...

|On our mobile phones, we often upload to google drive, then download it later from there.|
