My Connie Meyer Is Going To Bloom!

Postby apfire » Sun Apr 22, 2012 3:24 pm

I am very excited to finally get see blooms from this plant! Last year it had one bloom and it opened while I was on vacation. I hope I am home when at least one of the 3 buds open.

I have already had a few blooms from a few of my other hylocereus.

Image

I even have a few other buds

I am just looking for the defining statement to put here. Follow this link to see my other cacti.
