Notes:

The pictured bloom was taken after the bloom began to fade. Didn’t find it till now. The actual boom is 5 inches long. The plant has Cristmas cactus type leaves and gives off long shoots (some 6 ft. long) that have tiny bristle like spikes comes out. Was told this blooms every 10 years. It has bloomed twice since I’ve had it, 5 years. Sure would love to know what it is. Thanks so much in advance.

    This is called a queen of the night. The flowers only open at night. They are very easy to transplant. I just cut some of my plant off and stick it down into some potting soil mixed with some play sand and water it everyday. I keep mine outside under my Momossa tree with the long stems hanging from it.
