In the Garden #18
First Bloom, Queen of the Night
In the Garden: Night-Blooming Cereus (Epiphyllum oxypetalum) First Bloom, Queen of the Night. Mamiya M645 1000S, Mamiya-Sekor 150mm f/3.5 N, +1 close-up filter, #8 (K2) yellow filter. Fomapan 400 developed in Diafine.
I have read that a Night-Blooming Cereus takes seven years to mature and bloom. Erin and I were trying to remember how old this one is and 7 seems about right. Another name for these plants is Queen of the Night. That seems about right too.
