I was part of the heavy storms a few weeks back and well......my Cereus didn't care for all the water. Normally not a big deal but it totally threw everything out of whack. I have it at 5ft with 2 arms starting and was going for a perfect plant all the growth had been even, no ins or outs. Now the excess rain has made the new growth fatter than previous years and my 2 arms split from water logging. They will heal but, will carry a scar. There gos 6 six years of flawless care.
