Cereus pernambucensis

I was surprised to see this Cereus pernambucensis (grown from seed 2003) send out a bud.

The even more amazing thing is that it is just the top of the plant waiting for roots since ...

... it got broken after Hurricane Dean passed by in August.

Must be the stress. It had another bud but has aborted it.

It bloomed last week and I wasn't even here to see it. So disappointing. I still haven't even seen the photo.


  • That is truly amazing! I guess it is trying to hurry and set seed in case it doesn't make it, just like a regular flower. Gotta reproduce!
