Yellow epiphyllum from Orange County

The cutting I brought back from Orange County almost 3 years ago has grown and grown but refused to give off bloom until this week.
When I spotted the bud on the plant, I worried that I might miss seeing the bloom as I would be going back down. Luckily, the plant has decided to open its maiden bloom for me while I'm still here.
These photos were taken late yesterday afternoon.

And these are taken this morning.

The bloom looks so lovingly delicate!

Ha Xuan, it's worth the wait after all! Yes the bloom is so delicate and I think it is magical looking also - those powdery filaments looks starry. And the plant surely knows how to please the owner. The bloom opens at the right time so that you don't miss anything :-D

I agree, Steph. The plant sure loves me :-)
