    Those are very beautiful flowers they always remind of the cereus flower.

    Just want to also say YES!! isnt that oxalis such a nuisance . I have a barrel cactus I have had for years and at one time I patiently tried to get it all out, thinking I had succeeded not so long after it came right on back. Apart from the fact that you can't get too near the plant because of their spikes, I think the roots of the oxalis gets tangled with the roots of the Cactus and that is why it is hard to actually rid the pot altogether of it.

    It is a real pain, Dawn. The mammillarias have such sharp spines & it is impossible to pull the oxalis out anywhere near them. The smaller green cactus, the m. bocasana is only too happy to allow its fish hook shaped barbs to attach to your skin!!!! :x :x Even with gloves on you still can't get close enough to grab the oxalis. Another problem with the oxalis growing in the cactus container is that it isn't mature enough to be able to pull more than a few leaves off. It never seems to get to get to the stage of having dark green leaves as opposed to its soft green ones. Am lucky sometimes, as a root will come out, but, there are many more down in the dirt.

    Do have some thoughts, at times, about what I would like to do with it. :twisted: In America oxalis is grown as a plant. Some of the larger specimens do look attractive but, I fear, here it would rapidly turn into a rampaging pest weed.

    Shouldn't grumble, too much, about the oxalis as having only container plants, I do not, normally, have much of a weed problem. :cheers:

    The last two (so far) echinopsis seminudus buds are both growing rapidly.

    Thought those were the last flowers for another year but today, lo & behold, we have seen this bud growing. So it looks as though we may have another flower.

    Today's pic of the budding bud of the echinopsis seminudus. It is certainly developing. Bruiser feels there are some more coming. Do not know when I shall get the chance to repot it, at this rate.

    The echinopsis seminudus's latest flower bud is going well. There doesn't appear to be any others, so far. Am still surprised to see this one.

    Today's images of the echinopsis seminudus flower. It doesn't last long, only a few hours.

    Taken early this morning & the sun wasn't quite out from behind the ghost gum tree.

    Reaching, gingerly, across the very prickly mammillaria hahniana.
