This is the oldest cactus variety I'd which survived our long absenteeism and our gardener's apathy. I started following the journey of the buds when they first appeared as tiny dark blobs.Within a couple of days they grew this much (above) ready to flower. I's excitedly waiting for the moment to click the tender beauties . But this was not to be. When they opened their petals it was raining and unexpected strong wind felled them. I'll have to wait another six months to get that chance again. It is alright. Nature does play tricks off and on.
