    My night blooming plant is in flower!!! Check it out!

    Will it really only bloom at night so I'll prolly miss it? From this picture- any idea how much longer till it does open? Woohoo! my first flower from this plant!! (and my mom was growing it for like 8 years with nothin hehehehe)

    Epiphyllum...sometimes (incorrectly) call Nightblooming Cereus. The flowers usually open around 10 p.m....fairly quickly. Its a nice opportunity for photographs as it opens.

    That's awsome.

    Yeah, they open at night. But the flowers remain open for several hours, so you'll still be able to enjoy the bloom in the morning.

    Well, hopefully I'll be able to catch it in photos... Even though the green house is not here where I live so it's gonna take some effort. haha Good luck to me anyway!

    Welp- Tonight was the night! These are the best I got... It's hard to take photos at night, with a flash, (or without!) of a white flower lol Hope you enjoy!

    Here is a large photo showing that the bloom comes out of the side of a leaf not off of the main stem as (at least I would have) expected...
