Night Bloom Yes seriously thats the name of this unique flower. Well actually it is called night-blooming cereus. It is a type of cacti.
It is called by various name princess of the night, Honolulu queen, Christ in the Manger, Dama de Noche, queen of the night and Brahmakal.
You need to see it to believe it. It takes real long time to bloom from bud to flower it takes around 10-15 days and then it blooms only in night for max of 2-3 hrs. One needs to really keep a watch to see the bloom but the wait is worth it.
