This cactus has often had two blooms show up at once, but this year I had 6 gorgeous white blossoms all open together!
I've been experimenting with Mescal Bean Tree seeds, as after paying $43 for one small tree, and struggling to get it to thrive after transplanting, my hope is to start some from seed. Since they are fairly common in the median areas of some streets in Tucson, I've twice collected seeds but so far I haven't had any luck getting them to sprout. I've tried sanding them, soaking them and nicking them to no avail. I read that they should be collected when the inside seed is just turning pink, so I am waiting another week or so and then I will collect them again for another try.
