This afternoon I noticed this cactus Bloomed I don't know what kind it is ... last year it was more of a blue 'purple color this year well you see, I just repotted it a couple of weeks ago..with completely new cactus soil.

Does anyone know the name of this cactus??

Jimmy this is what I gave you two of.. [thumb]

The flower looks like some species of echinopsis. Here's a site for identifying almost any cactus.

I didn't go through it all, but yours is undoubtedly here, somewhere...

OOPS! I meant echinocereus, I really did [Embarrassed] (a little knowledge/vocabulary is a confusing thing!) It's the big green structure in the middle that looks like my echinocereus flowers. Here's that site again for the other genus:

Margaret Thanks for the Site!!! I spent over an hour looking!! The Flower is like one on a ribbed cactus and on several others but the cactus itself is different From the day I took the photo to today now another cactus head is forming and that was just 2 days ago so evidently when a flower blooms and another cactus will form [thumb]
I found echinopsis hauscha with the flower looking the same but the Enchinocereus more looks like the cactus specie it's self .. Thank again for the site [kissies]

Betty I looked up echincereues pectinatus That is exactly it!! Thanks again,, I thing I can count on with this site eventually someone finds the answer I'm looking for!!

Margaret E.Pell gave me a great site I booked marked to go there again and look there is a LOT of cactus there to look at I just never got back to it but it will remain bookmarked!

No Jessie..., no trick to it,, I had just repotted it in cactus soil and within a couple of weeks it bloomed!
