I don't know how many of you know that there is a flower that blooms only in the night ( maybe there are more which I don't know about ). I have a plant of that flower so that's how I know about it and seen it. The flower is of white colour and looks similar to the lotus. Here's the picture,

Right now it's not completely open ( because I had to sleep so I didn't wait much )

It opens completely after 12 ' o clock at night, basically between 12:00 and 12:30. As soon as the sun rises, the petals slowly start to wind themselves and the flower closes its mouth. So one can see this beautiful flower only at night for 5 to 6 hours. And it's not like that it blooms every night. This flower can only bloom one time. So if it had already bloomed at a specific night, the following night it will just wither.

It blossoms only during the rainy season or when there is rain( I don't know the scientific reason yet). In Hinduism, there's a myth that a god named Brahma resides in the flower. 'Brahma' is a god who has 4 faces in our universe( yeah you can say that there is concept of multiverse here). Those 4 faces are the indication of 4 directions north, south, east, west.
