What do you need to know about Queen of the Night?
Queen of the Night is a beautiful flower of the Cactus family, but not a typical representative because it does not have the sharp spines of the classic cacti. Its Latin name is Salenicereus – named after the ancient Greek goddess of the moon, so sometimes you can also see it as the Lunar cactus. The reason for this nickname is that the flower blooms at night, and at sunrise collects its colors.
The flowers themselves are extremely beautiful, with a diameter of up to 30 cm. Queen of the night blooms in white, creamy or yellow in June and July. Her aroma is associated with that of vanilla. After flowering the flower gives fruit, but in most species, as with the most popular of them (Selenicereus grandilorus) they are not edible.
The Queen of the Night comes from subtropical and tropical regions. Meet the Galápagos Islands, Mexico, Argentina, Cuba, and Jamaica.
