Default Old leaf cactus is flowering

I have some old leaf cactus indoor and today I noticed that one of them has started to flower. I think it has opened its flower yesterday or at last night as flower has begun to wither a little.





Kind of leaf cactus don´t look very charming and sometimes I am planning to throw them away... but then some of them makes a marvelous flowers and again I decide to keep them for a some more years.

Yes, every year. Its quite old one, about 20 years. I usually give to it few month rest at the mid winter in cold room. After that it makes flowers, at some years several. Best was 30 at the same time.

This same cactus has 2 others flowers; other one is already shriveled before nobody noticed it but the third is still alive. I had to take picture behind the window as its so difficult place:

After 20 years the cactus should stay forever at his place. The flower is beautiful.

It´s again time for the leaf cactus flower. It has just opened, at the previous night.



The flower was open only one day. At the second day, it had started to wither:



If it doesn´t make another flower (what is possible), the next one I need to wait one year again.
