Time for the Night-blooming Cereus  

The night-blooming cereus is a flower full of mystery, which often blooms during the period of End of Heat. This is because the climate during End of Heat, characterized by warm days and cold nights, is similar to tropical deserts, which is hot in the daytime but cold at night. And the origin of night-blooming cereus is the tropical deserts from Mexico to Brazil in South America. They blossom at night in order to avoid the blazing daytime sun. After a long period of time, the night-blooming cereus has gotten used to blossoming alone and quietly at night. Their lives are as short as falling stars.
