I waited 5 days between cutting flowers from this plant, and it produced a lot of 5" to 6.5" flowers in those 5 days. I bought the tubers(bulbs) in May 2018, not knowing anything about this particular cultivar. It's categorized as a "cactus" variety, because it's petals are 'supposed to be' rolled up into a spiky shape..

Unfortunately, cactus varieties often have many flowers whose petals fail to roll up, or are only partially rolled up, giving a sloppy, uneven look. But they look great if consistently shaped! These have been very consistent.
