my S#*t Cactus

This is a cactus that a friend in Nv. gave me a start of a year or so ago. She called it a s#*t cactus, because when it blooms the bloom really smells bad. Well now I can vouch for that. It took a couple weeks to form the bloom, the pod was about the size of a grapefruit. As you can see from the ruler I placed by the bloom it is at least 12 in. across. Really quite pretty and has a rubbery texture. Don't know how long it will last. Smelled worse the first day. Moved it to an out of the way place. Haven't checked to see if it still smells so bad. Would like to move it back to the living room. Anyone know what kind of plant this is? I just liked the unusual way it grows. But the blooms are something else, sort of alien!! Posted by Picasa
