Red Orchid Cactus Bloom

 What a spectacular event to watch a
Red Orchid Cactus bloom!
Yesterday my Red Orchid Cactus bloom started to open up.  I thought it was going to take a few more days to open but I had the oppportunity last night to watch it open during a 90 minute watch!  Below are the photos.  The bloom  measurers 8 inches in diameter. 

 Wow!  This is what it looks like this morning!!!!

Enjoy your weekend!


  1. That is gorgeous Judi, love that beautiful red. So glad you were there to get the pictures. Tfs

  2. Hi Judi your Red Orchid Cactus bloom it stunning totally gorgeous. I just love the colour and it was amazing that you were there to see it open. Was it quicker than normal because of the warm temperatures your currently having?
    Take Care

  3. oh, i am so happy for you, it is so magical to see these blooms, much more from your own gardening. i just planted mine this year from small cuttings, each time i see some growth, it makes me happy, wonder how much happier i would be to see it bloom.

    thanks for visiting my site Judi and sharing your orchid cactus bloom.
