A midnight flower

When we finished our Christmas gathering around 2 AM, we were greeted with this extraordinary flower. It comes from a plant relative to the cacti family (I have not been able to check the real name yet but I am working on it). A huge white flower (12 inches?) blooms for only one night, fully opening at around midnight. And Christmas eve was the night!

What looks like leaves are not leaves, it is the plant itself.

    NIGHT BLOOMING CEREUS IS THE NAME YOU ARE LOOKING FOR. MY MOTHER PLANTED A NUMBER OF THIS PLANT AROUND THE HOUSE.

This is an anti Chavez/chavismo blog, Readers have made up their minds long ago. Trying to prove us wrong is considered a troll. Still, you are welcome as a chavista to post if you want to explain us coherently as to why chavismo does this or that. We are still waiting for that to happen.
Insults and put downs are frowned upon and I will be sole judge on whether to publish them.
