I had planned a different six for this week, but as I wandered around the garden looking for suitable plants to feature I realised my Queen of the Night Orchid Cactus was about to flower. For anyone who is unfamiliar with this plant, they only flower at night and have the most magnificent flowers and an amazing scent!
My six this Saturday follows the flowers’ progress over the space of a couple of hours starting at around dusk to midnight. This morning the flowers have closed and will then die.
I still don’t know why the leaves are turning pink. Does anyone else have a cactus orchid and if so, do you have the same issue?
