a friend looking for a plant id


Hello all...

I got this picture and message from Island Jim.... the picture can me
found at

http://www.illianagardenpond.org/jimsphotos.htm

It is the first entry, jims unidentified cactus flower.

Here is his message....
<snip>
To paraphrase Joe Cocker "maybe with a little bit of help from my
friends" 
I'll be able to figure out what the cactus in the attached picture is.
It 
was planted with three Madagascar palms in a large pot. Because the 
Madagascar palms are really beginning to take off [the largest one is 
branching at long last], we decided today to remove and repot the
cactus. 
And lo and behold it was blooming! The bloom is no bigger than a penny.

It rained at least once every day in August except yesterday. Sometimes
it 
rained all day long; sometimes it rain for only an hour or so. It is 
pouring right now.
<end snip>

So-- anyone know it?

Donna
Where it is also still raining....
