Never had the flower last more than a few days, these are going on more than a week....the open wide during the day, and semi close at night....all the buds on the tips of the cactus will flower eventually this Spring.....I was actually shocked the phone took this clear of a shot..

wow! I've never seen a cactus bloom. I thought those flowers on them in the store were fake.

^^Correct, Xmas, Easter or Thanksgiving cactus depending on the time of year they bloom.

OP's cacti look to be from the echinopsis family of cacti.

That would be my guess, but cacti can sure fool you.

Thanks for letting me know the name.....so it was kind of hot, so the other evening, I gave it a bunch of water, and today after work I found this going on....





I've never seen it with more than 2 flowers, most of the time it's only one....
