Night Blooming Cereus Tracker II

NBC2aIt grows over night. I’m going to start calling it “he.”

He starts off nice and straight. Asparagus-like.

Next day, yuh oh…grown even more, and curling. I don’t think that’s supposed to happen.

nbc3Note he’s dangling by a thread. Whatever you do, the donor says, don’t knock it off. It’s not me I’m worried about, it’s the night cleaning guy. I need some sort of protective barrier.

Here is your promised ruler:nbc3b

He’s getting flossier.Graceful. Like an undersea plant. Go, Night Blooming Cereus! You can flower in a world gone mad.
