thanks for the cared for comment, they are actually not doing as well as they can because there is very limited sunlight in my house.

That cactus in the last pic. are those flowers really that shade of deep 'Rani Pink' as we call it in India?

Yup, they are this shade of pink, (I am not much of a photographer or editor as of now)

let the sun hit them properly and then wait for the flowers, I love this side of cacti.

right now I am waiting for the rest of them to show their colours.

the only problem is that the flowers open in sunlight and close in the evening. (only some are night blooming )

Wow! those cacti are splendid Vishaal!!!
At first I was thinking that why is Romi pushing you so much for the pics but now I feel like pushing you down from your balcony for hiding all those magnificent creations of nature from us. Despite being a keen observer and gazing hard at every wild plant on trips, I have never seen many of the cacti you have.
They are splendid in all sorts or shapes sizes and colors!

But I still remember a cactus, very tall and striped, and dark green and plump, very splendid. I saw it an year ago when we were going to Patnitop on the hills. And it had those large yellow blooms shining in sunlight, falling through the nearby trees! Since then, I've been waiting for the day when I'll see a cactus of the same kind again
