Night Blooming Cereus Tracker

nbc 1aNever seen/heard of one? You’re in for a treat.

The NBC blooms once a year for one night only, with a blossom as big as your head. Its scent precedes it.

People have parties. They can plan them because it takes 2 weeks for the thing to flower once the bud appears.

You have to have the young plant 3-4 years before it will bloom. This little baby is right on time. It’s in my office and I was going to move it home so I could enjoy it allll niiiight, but its donor said, “No! It likes where it is.” Guess I’m pulling an all-nighter at work on that evening.

She also told me other details, but I’ll let you watch for yourself, on this here tracker. This is smaller than it appears. I’ll get a ruler for ya.nbc 1b
