Need help identifing Moon Plant!
My nextdoor neighbors have a plant they call aMoon Plant.
I would like to find a source of seed and/or plants. I have
some nice jpegs of it but do no know how to post them to
the forum. The first time I saw it was in April of this
year. It was about 10" tall and about 10" broad. Now it is
over 4 feet tall and has about 200 blooms each night.
You can tell which buds are going to bloom each night. It
starts blooming right after sundown and all the buds are
fully open within 15 to 30 minutes. The blooms are beutiful
yellow and very delicate. They last over night and right up
to the sun hits them. In full sun the blooms wilt within 15
minutes. It started with just a few blooms a night but
within 2 weeks it was up to 200 a night with no sign of
slowing down. My neighbor picks all the wilted bloows off
by noon the following day and it starts all over again.
I sure would appreaciate any help in identifing this amazing
plant. I would be happy to e-mail the pictures to anyone
that would like to see them...
Thanks for the help, jmccullough3
