Night Blooming Cereus

Night Blooming Cereus

This is a flower from my Night Blooming Cereus when it bloomed last summer. That's my hand behind the flower. My friend and I are into these and Orchid Cactus ( Epiphyllum ) big time. We have about 75 different hybrids. My friend is the one who grows them and sells in ebay. The plants winter in our basement under lights and they all go out in the summer into a shade house that we constructed. We have plans to add on to the shade house this spring.

OMG!!! Amazing!! I think I have an Epiphyllum...friend gave me a couple of cuttings and they love moisture...I planted it in plastic..and it loves it..discovered that by incompetence...I forgot I had the cuttings in my purse for two days... figured they were dead and stuck them into a hole punched in a black garbage bag of soil/compost. They grew! Who knew!
would like to hear more about them. Did you say you grew orchids too?
or do I have you confused with another goy member? I have a Phalenopsis. and and Cymbidium.
