Night Blooming NightmarePosted: October 10, 2014
The Night Blooming Cactus (Epiphyllum hookeri) is out of control. It sent out a long stem that stuck itself behind the spouting.
All the stems grew so long, it had to be put on a wall.
Growing in just one direction, the original pot had to be wedged in a tall planter. It has become a nightmare to control.
But, all is worth it when rewarded with the beautiful night blooming flower. It is about 4 to 5 inches across and has a light scent.
One needs to be diligent and watchful as to not miss its dead-of -the -night bloom. It will close when the sun comes up.
