The white fragrant flower of the Echinopsis subdenudata is the reason why I was attracted to succulents. This cactus (also known as the Easter Lily cactus or the Sea Urchin cactus) is one of the first in my cacti collection since it is a summer grower species that offers no cultivation difficulties. The stem of my Echinopsis started out as globular but later on elongate up to 14 cm high with 11 ribs with very short cream spines. Also, it produces a gorgeous, night-blooming, white funnel-shaped, 8 cm wide fragrant flower with long tubes 14 cm long tubes. The one in the picture bloomed last night; and I was so glad to find the white flower still in full bloom early this morning waiting to be photographed.
