We are home from Colorado in time for triplets. All three of the
buds on our mature night blooming cereus opened in full darkness
in unison over a one hour time span.
Two are in a very intimate position with each other.
Open, they have spectacular features.
The only light that they had was from the half moon.
The stalk of the bud emerges from the free edge of the leaf.
They will stay open all night and will close with dawns light.
This is the only time the plant will bloom this year.
