Hello! Today we have of my very faves, a ‘June Noon’ flower. Not only is the flower gorgeous, it displays an amazing behavior where the flower rolls up as it wilts. This isn’t a one time thing, but happens with every bloom on this plant. Each clip shows 72 hours of blooming/wilting action. The flower is 5”/13 cm in diameter when fully open. I hope you enjoy! Very best! . . Audio again courtesy of @geylangcrunk … give these great artists a follow.

Hello! Today we have twin ‘Epic’ flowers and boy they are. Such amazing mix of red pink and with a twinge of orange on the outer sepals you see most clearly when opening starts. The pedals are translucent and the light from above becomes an intense saturated glow below. These flowers are 5 inches/13 cm once open. Each clip show 8 hours of blooming. I hope you enjoy. Best! . . Wonderful Audio by @geylangcrunk #timelapse #cactus #echinopsis #echinopsisfreak #flowers

Hello! Today we have 2 ‘Mona Lisa’ flowers blooming/wilting. We open with a close up focused on the way the petals … actually the sepals ... curl up during the wilting process. Then we back off to the full flowers. Note the way the colors change from yellow with a touch of pink to pink with yellow as the wilting takes place. Each clip shows 48 hours of blooming/wilting action. Hope you enjoy and best! .

Audio on … 🔊 . Hello! Today we have 3 “Volcanic Sunset” flowers blooming and wilting. One blooms the first evening as the other two double in size to bloom the second night. The first three clips each show 72 hours of blooming/wilting action. I love the way the flower roll up during wilting. If you stick with the video to the end, there’s a brief close up of how pedals from two of the flowers become entangled during wilting as happens so often but we typically fail to notice.

I haven’t done a throwback in a couple of years I think as I try to stick to new content almost exclusively. But I thought I’d make an exception and bring back a “remastered” version of one of my favorite early timelapses from way back when IG only had 15 second videos and thus there wasn’t really the chance for extra clips of close-ups, etc. . This throwback shows 6 ‘Fascination’ flowers doing their blooming thing. So love the colors of these stunners. . Sound on for a clip ‘Chin Swee Sunset’ one of my fave tunes by O$P$ … @geylangcrunk Hope you enjoy!

And last, but certainly not least, hello again to those of you who have so kindly followed me longer term. . Our first post for the new year captures two ‘Embers’ flowers blooming and wilting over a 72-hour period.

I hope you enjoy and, again, thank you to @instagram and to all you new and old who kindly follow @echinopsisfreak I hope you'll really enjoy this year’s posts. Finally, thank you once again to O$P$ .. Owe Money Pay Money … IG: @geylangcrunk for providing the amazing tracks I use for audio. Very best!

Hello there! Today we have a single ‘Volcanic Sunset’ flower blooming and wilting. This orange beauty is 5.5”/14 cm in diameter once fully open. Each clip shows 72 hours of blooming to wilting activity. I’m sorry to report that the 2018 blooming season has ended and as such my already limited posting will become even less frequent until the 2019 blooming season begins next April. Best wishes for a wonderful Thanksgiving to all here in the US and holiday best wished to all everywhere.

Hello! Today we have a 8”+/21 cm+ ‘California Orange’ flower blooming and wilting. The wilting of this flower is nuts … the petals literally roll up as you’ll see. The total time shown is 2 days of blooming and wilting. Clips showing close up of wilting show 24 hours. Hope you find it as fascinating as I do.

Hello! This week we have an unnamed Echinopsis hybrid … about 2 days of blooming action in each brief clip. One flower blooms the first evening and three more the next as the earlier bloom wilts. Each flower is about 3.5” / 10 cm once open. Hope you enjoy! Have a great week ahead. Apologies for not responding to those who left comments on my last post, that week got out of control.

Hello! Today we have 6 flowers blooming on an Echinopsis ‘Watermelon’ hybrid. These flowers are 3.5”/12 cm in diameter once open. Each clip shows about 8 hours of blooming action in a few seconds. Note: In my last post, I commented on how I actually end up reducing the vibrance of the real colors of these incredible flowers as that’s necessary to not loose details and to not simply have a “blown out” image. So these videos typically understate the true intensity of the colors rather than overstating. Several followers asked me to provide an example of what the video would look like if I did not cut back the saturation. At the very end of this video, after the credits even, you will find I have included two still images from my last post. The first shows an image without the saturation dialed back and the second shows what it looks like after I’ve reduced it, in this case by 35%. Have a great week ahead! Best!!! #echinopsis #echinopsisfreak #cactus #cactusflower #watermelon #flower #fleur #blumen #timelapse #cactuscollector

Hello … Today we have twin “Windago” flowers showing off. These flowers are a great example of the many types of Echinopsis blooms that have colors so intense they’re really impossible to image accurately. Even though the colors remain over-saturated at times in these clips, I’ve already cut the actual saturation by close to 40%. This is typical of what has to happen with many of these amazing plants. “Photoshopping” means reducing the vibrance and saturation of reality … often dramaticallly … vs. pumping it up. “Windago” flowers are 13cm/5” in diameter once open. Each clips shows about 9 hours of blooming action. Hope you enjoy and have a great week coming up. #cactus #cactusflower #echinopsis #echinopsisfreak #timelapse #flower #fleur #flores #blumen

Each clip shows about 60 hours of blooming and wilting activity. These flowers last about 2 days … partially closing and reopening the second night before wilting.

Wait for it … yes, that expression has gone out of style. But if you wait for it, the last clip in this montage is a close up of petals rolling up as they wilt … fascinating behavior. This incredible Echinopsis is a “La Lania” hybrid … each of the 8 flowers is 20 cm/8” in diameter once fully open. Each clip captures 3 days of blooming and wilting action. Some early fireworks for the 4th. Not just the explosion of blooming, but also similar in how the firework fades away with the wilting. At least I feel that way. Hope you enjoy and have a great week coming up!! #timelapse #echinopsis #trichocereus #cactus #flower #fleur #flores #blumen #cactusflower #bloom #wilt #fireworks #4thofJuly

Hello! It’s finally the 2018 blooming season for Echinopsis here in Florida in the US. I’m glad to kick off the new year of posting with one of the most famous of all Echinopsis … “Flying Saucer,” a hybrid developed by the great Hans Britsch. Each of these massive beauties is almost 23 cm/9” in diameter once opened. Each clips shows over 2 days of flower blooming/wilting compressed into a few seconds. Four flowers bloom the first evening and then more do the second evening.

Freaky. Yes. Freaky. Want to so why I’ve nicknamed Echinopsis flowers ‘Freaky Flowers’? Check out the behavior of these ‘June Noon’ flowers as they wilt. They literally roll up. These flowers are 15 cm/5” wide at full bloom and then roll up to about 4 cm/1.5” across at the end of the wilting process. Each clips shows about 36 hours of wilting action smooshed into a few seconds. 🔊sound on for a clip from The Singularity is Near by O$P$ that I think matches the freakiness of the flowers.

Hello from windy/rainy Florida. Here in Jacksonville we’re getting just a small taste of the terrible stuff Irma is doing on the other side of the state. Thoughts and prayers to all impacted by Irma and Harvey. Today we have 7 ‘Madame Pele’ flowers blooming as seen from two angles. These incredible flowers are 13 cm/5” in diameter once fully open. I’ve also included a shot of the EchinopsisFreak cacti collection hunkering down in the garage to ride out Irma. Moving them all in and out of the garage makes me think seriously about trying to get a grip on my cacti addiction. Best to you and, again, very best to all those in FL and TX. #cactus #flower #timelapse #echinopsis #madame #pele #fleur #blumen #flores

Hello! Today we have 72 hours of blooming and wilting of a ‘First Light’ flower that’s 15 cm/6” in diameter when open. ‘First Light’ is a Trichocereus, a type of cactus now classified as an Echinopsis (thus appropriate material for yours truly ). But Trichos do display some different behavior from other Echinopsis … you’ll notice the sort of double blooming that these flowers exhibit. You’ll also notice that after the original blooming the timelapse speeds up, that’s my doing to compress the length of the footage. Hope you enjoy.
