I've got one of these!!! I live for its blooms.

Tolleson, AZ(Zone 9a)

I need one!!!

North Augusta, ON

I just recently got 3 big cuttings for a dollar each, can't wait for them to grow up and bloom. Waiting isn't one of my stronger qualities.

I have tendered a single night-blooming Cereus for 32 years, and have enjoyed its occasional one-night bloom as it filled the darkness with its heavy perfume. New to Dave's Garden, I am reminded by your comments to pay extra attention to this plant--in the hope of encouraging more frequent blooms. If you have any tips, I am most appreciative. I will pass on any new information I come across.
