Epiphyllum oxypetalum

Epiphyllum oxypetalum

Description:

Epiphyllum oxypetalum (Dutchman's Pipe, kardable, Night Queen or Nishagandhi or Gul-e-Bakawali) is a species of cactus and one of the most cultivated species in the genus. It is also referred to as Night blooming Cereus and often confused with species of Selenicereus.

Notes:

We call it "Wijaya Kusuma". These flowers always bloom in a middle of the night. So.. if you want to see this flower bloom you must stay awake until midnight :-)
