Night-blooming Cereus

Night-blooming Cereus

Our beautiful Night-blooming Cereus put up a wonderful show last night!

Night-blooming cereus is the common name referring to a large number of flowering ceroid cactithat bloom at night. The flowers are short lived, and some of these species, such as Selenicereus grandiflorus, bloom only once a year, for a single night.

We believe this was the last batch of blooms for the year, so we will have to wait until next year for more!
