Night Queen X2
Queen of the Night, a. k. a. Wijaya Kusuma (in Indonesian) is a dramatic night-blooming cactus. It blooms once a year, only overnight. This anomaly performance is extraordinary, as expected from plants that consume all reproductive energy in a short amount of time. Shining pure white like the moon, the flowers are large and profoundly fragrant in their blooming night. Indonesians believe caring for this plant brings luck and virtue to our lives.
The Night Queen has an intimate connection with the royal family of the Majapahit kingdom. The legend stated that every new king-to-be must handpick the blooming flower to be worthy of the throne.
