Re: night blooming cereus

WOW! What a beautiful flower. I have a plant that somebody on the list was gracious enough to give me a cutting of...and I lost the piece of paper on it with the name. Anybody remember sending it to me? Anyway...it's getting much bigger...but no blooms yet. I'm still waiting.
