How big are cactus flowers?

    The size of the flower on a cactus usually depends on the type. For example, the orchid cactus is known for having the most beautiful and fragrant flowers which can grow up to eight inches across. There are other cactus flowers that grow as long tubes up to 30cm so bees and moths can reach the nectar and pollinate the blossoms.

    Like nellieliz4 said, it depends on the cactus. There are three main types of flowering cactus: barrel, prickly pear, and hedgehog. The flowers of some of these plants have a pretty large range. For example, barrel cacti generally have flowers that are 5-6 inches wide, while prickly pears can have flowers as small as 2 inches.
