Queen of the night or Night-blooming cereus are the names of several genera & species of nightblooming cactus. It was nice to learn the various names like San Pedro (sounds very revered), Dutchman's Pipe(with a grave face), Red Pitaya (some nomadic tribe), Arizona Queen of the Night (Beauty Pageant) & Vanilla Cactus (reminds me of Ice-cream!!)
The nightblooming cereus is also known as the lunar flower, moon flower and luna flower. As the name suggests it blooms at night. This is the info that I could collect about it. Rest needs to be explored.
This is my humble attempt to capture its beauty... I always seem to be attracted towards the cacti blooms!
Hope you have a wonderful & blooming Cactus Monday:)
