This Flower stays open for 24 hours once per year and the Biologist Ioanna was looking for me everywhere into the garden for me to get some images . She was very happy with the open flower , and i feel lucky as is not a flower that everyone can see in the garden is not for the visitors . So here it is Hylocereus Undatus Cactus .
