Cactus Flower (Unknown)
My wife picked up this succulent planter at a garage sale somewhere over the years and we added some cacti and succulents to it over the years, so I truly have no idea the name of this cactus at all. It does bloom very prettily on occasion, though, so I thought I would share it as this week’s Flowering Now entry. If you have can identify the cactus, I would much appreciate it. Succulent identification is not one of my strong points, if not one of my weakest points, so I am sure most anyone else can do better than I with the identification. Thanks!
