A number of different night blooming plants of the Epiphylum, Hylocereus and Selenicereus genera are found n Bermuda.The most common being Hylocereus undatus which blooms prolifically during August and September. These magnificent flowers last only one night, fading rapidly as the sunlight touches them. Why do some plants put so much energy into their flowers which die within hours regardless of whether they have been pollinated?
