Artist's Description

this is the Epiphyllum oxypetalum or the common name Night blooming Cerus – the orchic cactus
It was given to me by an art friend and it took 3yrs to get it to bloom
the flower starts to open up at night and only lasts about 48 hrs, you can almost watch it open up in front of you and it is spectacular when it reaches it height….. and comes in many colours
