Today when I woke up I found out that the starfish cactus flower was opening. And two hours later she was ready to show her beauty to the world!

I love watching my plants change. This flower produce a putrid odor to attract flies and insects, which pollinates the blooms. But don’t worry, you will only feel it if your nose is too close to the petals.
