« on: Sunday, 30 September 2012 - 13:51:01 »
here in northern italy it's time for flowers for fissuratus and its cultivars, need to wait a bit for retusus and all the cultivars.

Great plants!
I'm sure you have been busy pollinating today (:
BTW, I got really good germination results from your godzilla seeds, so now I'm just waiting on the pereskiopsis to do it's magic...

Great Dan, we are pleased to hear that!
Here usually fissuratus hintonii are the first ones to get in flower, than there are fissuratus, lloydii and godzilla.
Usually they make more than one blooming, but this is the first of the season for godzilla. And in Denmark?

Great plants and flowers, how big are they?

Some of my Godzillas flowered already 1-2 weeks ago, together with the retusus Cultivars. My biggest Godzilla and also a very big Frumdosus are building flower buds now.

the biggest one is the one in the second photo, about 14-15 cm, the others are a bit smaller (about 9-10 cm).
our retusus cultivars have buds now but they will flower next week probably...

Usually they make more than one blooming, but this is the first of the season for godzilla. And in Denmark?

I don't know yet... so far no godzilla's are blooming in my greenhouse, but hopefully that will change in a few years as my plants get larger (:

A bloom of a few days ago, unfortunately only one plant so I hybridized with a maruibothreefingers. Next year, if all goes well, you will see results.
