    hey , my night blooming cactus grew too big so i had to make cuttings out of it and relocate it to a new location where it can grow freely . i have about 7 cuttings that i made and will grow when you plant them in soil . this is the cactus that has large beautiful blooms at night time and if your lucky , when the bloom is done it will form a large bright red fruit that is very edible and delicious . it grows tall and is quite hardy . it has very small spines so be careful . i have measured and weighed ( hhhm , why did i do that ) each cutting , at the moment i'm looking for the following :

    i will also take non cp's as well but i forgot what i wanted after i made this big list and if there is any cp's that i did not list that you think i might like then don't be afraid to ask . these are big cuttings and here are the sizes :

    height : * * * * * * *
    2 ft
    25 inches
    33 inches
    30 inches
    3 ft
    3 ft
    39 inches

    these are flowering size cuttings and the genus is cereus , i don't know what species though but its quite common . the blooms are similar to the orchid cactus epiphyllum which also blooms at night . i hope will find some trades .

    Any pics, or do you know the genus? Sounds like a really interesting plant though. I have a nice D. multifida "extrema" if you are interested shoot me a pm.
