Seymour Becomes Audrey
This night blooming-cereus was given to me by my friend Steven about two years ago. Last week, I noticed the development of its first bud and began photographing the splaying of the flower last evening. Here are some sample photographs to give you an idea of its size and beauty.
I couldn't help but draw comparisons to the size and shape of the flower to the plant in "Little Shop of Horrors" and have consequently decided to name this cactus "Seymour" in honor of the Rick Moranis character in the film. The flower evolved from a beast into a beauty, as if Seymour became Audrey over the course of the night.
