Trichocereus purpureopilosus     9/13/18
Note the bee. This flower is actually quite different from all other flowers of this species that I've seen these past 13 years or so. There are many more petals (tepals?). Unfortunately I wasn't clever enough to show this in the photo. Happily, another plant bloomed at the same time and I crossed the two. Both flowers "took" and I have two swelling fruit growing in the greenhouse right now. I'll know if I have a heritable feature in three years or so.   (05/32)
