Why are you reporting this puzzle?

This is one of Epiphyllums which blooms at night (hence the name "Queen of the Night") and dies when the sun comes out, but I managed to catch six flowers before they died. They are pollinated by moths. I grow mine in hanging baskets, under trees.

Bottom: A close up of one flower with its pretty pink stamen.

Epiphyllum is a genus of epiphytic plants in the cactus family, native to Central America and South America. Epiphyllum are epiphytic cacti as their name suggests. Some call them orchid cactus due to their large bright blooms and growth habit. Wiki.

Maybe now I am writing the last comment for this wonderful puzzle picture: short and sweet -> very beautiful and original. Here locally I have never seen it before. Thank you, my dear Janet. Hugs and ♥

Thanks for that Allie, yes how great it would be if we could share. Yes I though yours was a cactus. I have had this white one for many years. I have a red and a pink too and some other fancy ones, but they don't flower well. I'm supposed to have a yellow one but it has never flowered for me. Hugs dear friend. ♥♥

The stems of that cactus are finger shaped not flat. Plus it is very big (12 inches across) and has multiple layers of petals. I love all mine but yours is so beautiful in it's simple form - would love it in my collection - shame we live so far apart :-)) tfs x

Thanks so much Suzy, yes I was thrilled to get six blooms still out. Hugs my friend ♥

Allie this is a really old fashioned one, I've had for many years. Now they are breeding many colours and huge blooms. What is the one you have on Allie B2? Is that a cactus flower? They are very similar.
Thanks and hugs dear friend. ♥♥
