Cactus coincidence!! A friend of mine on another forum posted pictures of his cactus in bloom - beautiful! For those that don't own cactii, you can wait for years and years until one decides to bloom, and the blossoms are very short-lived - sometimes just a day or so. http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2503/3893567422_2969907be7_b.jpg Now here's the coincidence. I commented on his image (he is a fantastic photographer) and then thought I'd look at our cactii. As luck would have it, the smallest one of all has a blossom, and two additional buds near the top. It's only about 2" tall, so it's not going to have big flashy flowers, but it's interesting that it decided to bloom at the same time as my friend's cactus in England. I don't know for sure what the little red thing is, but I assume its a fruit containing seeds that developed from a prior blossom - it was on there when my wife grabbed these little guys while repotting her mother's cactus.
