2013 2013 2013 <div dir="ltr" style="text-align: left;" trbidi="on"><div dir="ltr" style="text-align: left;" trbidi="on"><div style="text-align: justify;">On July 3 in the afternoon, it became evident that our Cereus Oxypetalum Night Blooming Orchid Cactus would open up that very night. Even though in HEAVY RAIN... Perfect for our 237th Independence Day celebration!</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-KaXrdINQG70/UhJ0vP-yNiI/AAAAAAAATh4/Lhnlp8MseZ8/s1600/Cereus+Oxypetalum+Orchid+Cactus+Mariette's+Back+to+Basics+1.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em;
