Apologies to Rod Stewart, check out the mass flowering on my Epiphyllum oxypetalum. I counted 39 blooms, with the majority flowering in the early hours this morning. Here in Darwin the flowerings are triggered by a large rainfall event, thunderstorms and monsoonal downpours. This is my 4th flowering event this season, so on track for the usual 7 flowerings during the 'Wet Season'.

About 1800mm ( 71" ) per year on average but can be quite variable. The previous two 'Wets' were on the dryer side with only 1062mm ( 42" ) in 2019. In 2011 I had over 3000mm ( 120" ) !
