My Selenicereus bloomed last night!

It's such an ugly plant when it's not in bloom, which is most of the year, but man, when it does its thing, it's remarkable. The flower was ten inches across and just under a foot between the petals and the stem.

Last night at 11:45

Don't you wish you could freeze it and keep it longer! What a great bloom, thanks for showing.

Flower is gorgeous, but even the spent bloom was interesting.
