Rose Cactus @ Leaf Cactus @ Wax Rose (Pereskia bleo (Rose Cactus))

My mum's Rose Cactus from Panama and Colombia. It has orange flowers and its bloom only last a day. Notice the spines/ thorns? I can't wait for mine to bloom.

I'll have to try and get one. I think I'll have to get it from a specialist nursery. You don't see these in ordinary garden centres.
