Night Blooming Sirius or Cereus
About twenty-five years ago near midnight my in-laws called excitedly asking me to come over with my camera. I was off that night.
I grabbed my camera and quickly drover over to their house. Their house isn’t but a few miles away.
They had in a pot a Night Blooming Sirius in it. It was a big plant with a very bright blossom on it. It blooms rarely – I forgot how often, no more than once a year, but I think it was something like every four or five years. I ran a google search and saw some pretty photos but nothing that told their frequency of blooming.
Anyhoo, It had a stout looking stalk with the blossom in full bloom at the top. It smelled to high heaven. It was the Night Blooming Sirius’s time to mate. It had an erection.
