Epiphyllum oxypetallum "night blooming cereus"

The blossoms opened completely at 11 pm. Fragrant, amazing to look at. By 5 am they were nearly closed, now fully closed.

I did try to pollinate 2 of the blossoms. Curious to see if they make fruit.

Bike to work. Today, 9 miles each way (same as yesterday).

  1. Congratulations. Those are quite pretty!

  2. Beatiful! I have 5 buds and waiting for it to bloom. How do you pollinate it?

  3. Thanks.

    I tried pollinating with a small paintbrush, but it didnt take.

    Ther is one more bud forming, so another chance in about a month.

    Thuy, did your's bloom?
