When we returned from vacation I noticed the Cereus had bloomed. It's not a very pleasing pot plant with scared and bruised leaves but the bloom makes up for it's humble appearance. I thought I'd have to wait a year. But then I noticed six little nodules forming last week but I thought they were probably new leaf segments since I had never seen a plant with six blooms and it had already bloomed. The pics below show 5 of the 6 buds forming--what a nice surprise.
