Brahma Kamal
This extraordinary flower blossomed two days ago at night in my back garden. It has several unusual features. The single most unusual one is that it flowers at night and has a life of six hours. You can see by the picture that it buds out of a leaf and belongs[?] cactus family.
Some questions naturally arise. The extraordinary beauty attracts which pollinating agent? and that too at night?
