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!

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!!! nodding 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 Hilarious!

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! I tip my hat to you.

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. Rolling on the floor laughing

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.

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! Whistling Hilarious!

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/HT4083 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/iphoneapp

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