First time flowering .....have had it nearly five years...pretty shocked myself....i guess this cactus needed to get to its full height of 30cm before it would flower...its been repotted twice....has 7 flower buds on it now....were all chuffed at home having picked him up in ikea as a little spikey ball....our first cactus in
fact :-)

I also never have any flowers and most of mine are very old as well.
You have a very nice collection Cacti, Hywel is the one to put your question to...

Hello Hywel, Cacti has a query on the questions page, you will probably be able to answer, hope you don`t mind, I remembered you saying you don`t very often go on there...
