mgrey -
You posted some BEAUTIFUL pictures! I was wondering, are you sure these are Cereus fernambucensis - because they look like Epiphyllum oxypetalum , or Queen of the Night - also called Night Blooming cereus, to me.

Would you mind checking that out - here is the link to the Queen of the Night: http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/2443/

If you agree, would you mind if we got your pictures moved to the correct PF listing? This would reduce confusion for everyone.

Thanks,

I agree with Onalee, this spectacular bloom looks like Epiphyllum oxypetalum.
Along with the two other photos you have up on this entry page:

Do you by any chance have a photo of the branches, stems, foliage or whole plant?
