must have patience for -
.. waiting
.. for this Night Blooming Cereus
.. to show her beauty
.. and fill the night air
.. with amazing fragrance
.. it has been four years recovering
.. from freezes - 2 yrs in a row
.. these just aren't designed to handle that cold
.. in Florida USA

.. the cactus is growing long
.. with many sharp barbs
.. which is the site that produces these flowers
.. looks quite healthy
.. so, July - August

.. will be looking to head outside
.. 10pm EDT for photo shoots

.. attached to a plain cactus that sends out 3-4 foot long pieces. A small green/red pinecone shape bud appears, changing into a green bullet shape before opening into these saucer size, fragrant, delicate flowers.
The flower starts opening at night and continues into the next day. If the weather is good, the flower will last 2-3 days.
