The Ark

Whatever floats your boat...

Peniocereus johsntonii and Peniocereus greggii var transmontanus bloom nights. If you look at the right time you will see a moth pollinating the greggii. Also a Cereus species I think the Arizona one is still the coolest. The plant shown in real time went missing this year. I have planted two in its place. An older one which hopefully will bloom in the next few years, and an offspring from the plant that went missing. You will see those transplants in place. Hopefully the older plant will bloom this year.

That plant defies the laws of nature in a very beautiful way.

If you really commit to sinking into this video, it's an amazing dance.

You made a nice piece out of the already fascinating rare footage.

 I understand very well why people have worshiped the wonders of the natural world for so long. I can totally get behind rituals and reverence for the natural world and the universe. this was perfectly timed and speed ramped for this song.  totally enjoyable peaceful break to my day. thanks for that

I love it that you keep making these videos about these plants. And thank you for answering my question in the video itself so I didn't have to ask: how do you cultivate these things? I take it, because you had to post the legal warnings around their support cages, that people steal these out of the wild? Good for you, Chig, giving a helping hand to these native plants. You're a guardian of the desert.
