Flowers: Creamy-white with a dull red throat.
Watering: It is a summer-growing species that needs regular water in summer, but do not overwater (rot prone), keep dry in winter at a minimum temperature of 0°C.
Hardiness: Reputedly resistant to frost if kept on the dry side prior to, and during, cold weather (hardy to -12C ° or less for short periods).
Exposition: The plant tolerates extremely bright situations but enjoys filtered sunlight or afternoon shade, inside it needs bright light, and some direct sun. Tends to bronze in strong light, which encourages flowering and heavy spine production, but is likely to suffer from sun scorch or stunted growth if over exposed to direct sunlight during the hottest part of the day in summer.

came with flower bud and another starting to grow
Yes, cactus is small, but they are slow growers. Love it. It came with flower bud which has opened.
Cactus was WAY too small. Wish I could return it.
