Queen of the Night, Dutchman's Pipe Cactus, Night blooming Cereus
Epiphyllum oxypetalum


Although my Cereus doesn't much care for the climate in Iowa, this is the second bloom he produced this summer.

IowaCrone, Nice looking bloom you have there, except I believe this is Epiphyllum oxypetalum instead, because of the presence of the rounded inner petals.....which is also known as a 'Night Blooming Cereus' because it used to be named a Cereus years ago.
Compare with these blooms:

Would you like your photo moved to the right page?

I agree with Xeno - I think you have a Queen of the Night there (Epiphyllum oxypetalum) rather than a Cereus fernambucensis.

To keep PF right and reduce confusion, it would be best to move it to the correct PF record.
