Good evening dear cacti friends,
today the 6.part of the flowers of June 30, 2022.
Without problems I could still show part 7 and 8; but I will not do that.
It is already the middle of June and there were so many beautiful flowers this month. . .



Now some photos from May 30, no Sulcorebutia - my word of honor!

Hey K.W...
You keep bursting that bubble of perfection in the greenhouse. No sick or dying plants allowed. Please stop..
The medusas head euphorbia is awesome. The blooming rollercoaster is also incredible.

Hi K.W.
I like the Ceropegia stapeliiformis. It's like a snake between all the Euphorbias, as it's common name Snake Creeper.

Good evening dear cacti friends,

today bloomed some "Schick hybrids".
It has been very hot in Cologne today,
June 18, 2022 + 38°C / 100°F, so the flowers were faded after a few hours. . .

K.W.; I get a bit overwhelmed( in a good way) looking at all your great looking plants and the beautiful flowers! 😃 Picture 305692; is that a flowering ‘Fred’? Funny picture, the single set of spines and the cobweb on the plant made the illusion of a spider on the plant very realistic! 🙂

Adding; I may have missed it, but you don’t seem to have many epiphytic cacti? If that assumption is true, is it a reason for it?

Good evening dear cactus friends,

this weekend is an Astrophytum weekend.
Today was the first day of the yellow flowers.
I like them best when they are yellow. . . no cultivars. . .

Good evening dear cacti-friends,

today June 28, 2022 was another Astrohytum day. . .
After the last two days were cool and shady,
today a lot of sun and summer temperatures.
I have to hurry, only very few flower photos - more in the next days.

Good evening dear cacti-friends,

some more Astrophytum photos from 28.June 2022.
June 29, almost all flowers were already faded.
On such hot days the flowers do not stay long. . .

Hi K.W.
i just saw the post of Greenhouse Temps. Welcome to my world. Its been those temps for 2 weeks now in my greenhouse. I have an 18" and a 12" fan running 24hrs a day right now. I've only had 3 plants succumb. They like the constant moving air. Even the succulents are growing this year.

Astro-parade, red Matucana, red Parodia, red Acanthocalycium (?). They love the heat... =D>
If your cacti mess in your job just forget about the job.
