Lunar Flower?

Posted by Hotaru z6NY (My Page) on

I initially bought a pack of moon flower seeds because in an anime I watch, they talk a lot about lunar flowers and that they lead the path to paradise.

Anyway, here's pictures of the flowers in the show: http://flower-fish.hp.infoseek.co.jp/moon_flower.html

The site is in Japanese, and I was wondering if any of you know the specific name of this flower, and any where I can get them online.

Thanks.

Look for the thread called "night blooming cereus". Some one identified the plant as a Epiphyllum oxypetalum, which I think is the same as your pictures. They said you can get it from Logee's.

The scientific name is the night-blooming cereus which blooms at midnight for one night for a few hours and its found in desert kinda places like southern america and part of some succulant/cactus family. After the flower blooms a red fruit grows which is apparently edible.
