Night-blooming cereus in Utrecht ready to bloom

By

For the first time in eleven years, a night-blooming cereus at the Oude Hortus in Utrecht is ready to bloom, and when it does, it does so at night.

The flower that blooms from the plant can be up to 30 cm. The experts say that it is the tropical weather we’re having in the Netherlands that is encouraging the plant to come out after more than a decade.

Over the next few days, one flower should come out, but when, nobody knows for sure.
