that is lovely. Could you photograph it in natural light, please?
Sorry by the time I got back from Tokyo, the bloom was spent. It looks pretty much the same in daylight.

I can’t believe it’s only been 4 months since this plant flowered (in my mind, I thought a year had passed lol).

This is the second time it’s blooming this year from a second slower growth. Two slightly smaller flowers this time.

Thanks all. I like luddemanianas because they are small and compact, with tiny footprint, and large (usually round) flowers. They do require a little more light than other unifoliates since they grow in cactuses lol. I just put them closer to the light until the leaves are tinged or spotted red.

Leslie, that's a really feast for the eyes. 👍 Could it be the colouration of the momentary flower(s) is slightly more bright.....or is it just the photo.

Would you, guys, think it possible to grow C. lueddemanianas in a South facing window on these latitudes (Denmark)?
