These are the flowers on my Night Blooming Cereus.
I have a plant that belonged to my mom. Before that it belonged to my grandmother and possibly her mother before that. It's called a Night Blooming Cereus (pronounced series). I am surprised it has lasted as long as it has and I sometimes wonder who will get it next. I was looking at it yesterday and it had 11 blossoms on it. Two blooms I had already missed, but I saw that 2 more were going to bloom last night. They only bloom at night, so if your not a night owl you usually miss the flowers. Well I kept checking on it until about 10pm and no flowers. But I get up at 5 am, so I figured I might get lucky. I did. This morning when I went out, there were 2 flowers. They are so pretty and unusual. They only bloom for me, like twice a year.This is a shot of the blooms.
This is a closer shot of some of the blooms. You can see the 2 flowers that had bloomed the night before.
