Selenicereus is also called the queen of the night

Thousands of people around the world watched as a unique selenicereus flower bloomed in the Cambridge University Botanical Garden, blooming for just one night.

The staff of the botanical garden says that the cactus, whose homeland is thousands of kilometers away, bloomed in Britain for the first time.

Selenicereus wittii, “moon cactus” or “queen of the night”, as it is also called, is a rare unusual cactus with elongated flat stems that surround the trees.

The flower with characteristic sharp white petals resembling a crown, usually blooms at night, emitting a strong nauseating aroma, and blooms for only 12 hours. After that, its smell becomes bitter and the flower withers.
