Astrophytum myriostigma

A lot of plants were flowering today. Finally a bit of summer arrives and the plants are showing their appreciation. First, the "Bishop's Cap". It sometimes has an undeserved reputation of being hard to grow. Not at all. Just remember, it doesn't like to be wet during the cool, wet winter, but it appreciates plenty of water and a bit of fertilizer during the warm days of summer. (This refers to conditions in the Pacific Northwest of the U.S. of course; what works best elsewhere I can't say.)
