In our opinion this flower is very elegant!

Hello and thanks to all!
We have too five years old plants that are smaller than this one, it always depends how you grow the plant from seed. If it has shocks when it is small probably will not develop well. This is very common with ariocarpus, but also with other genus.
It is not the first time it flowers, we already got some seeds from it!
