Re: Night-blooming Cereus


That would have been my guess, Theresa.

As a bit of trivia, Cereur peruviana is also called "noght-blooming cereus." That's at least three very different plants that have that name.

Hi Jim and all-
 Mine is the Epiphyluum oxypetalum I believe.

Here's a link to a picture of the one I had in California; This one is Epiphyllum oxypetalum. It is strikingly different from Hylocereus undatus, although the flowers look and smell a lot alike.

There are a bunch of plants with the popular name "night-blooming
cereus", Jesse. Many of them are hybrids and take varying times to
first bloom. Among the cactus cuttings I recently got from California
is Hylocereus undatus [called "night blooming cereus"] but it is
nothing like the night blooming cereus I had when I lived in
California, which I'm reasonably certain was a hybrid. I can't make
out the leaf structure of Theresa's lovely flower well enough to
decide if it's like my new ones or my old one.
