A super-rare Amazonian cactus has flowered for what experts believe is the first time ever in the UK

A super-rare Amazonian cactus has flowered for what experts believe is the first time ever in the UK - but it has already started to wither. The tropical Moonflower, or Selenicereus wittii, is usually exclusive to the floodplain rainforests of the Amazon Basin in South America. However, Cambridge University Botanical Gardens (CUBG) has been home to one of these rare and exotic cactus plants since 2015. *This video was filmed 21st February 2021.
