    I got some kind of Night Blooming Cereus type plant. Not sure what the exact species is. But this opens up its gigantic flowers at night, and by morning, its withered. They smell great too! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] These started to open around 6pm, and by 11pm it was fully open. Here's some pics, hope you like!

    That is most definately an Epiphyllum looks like an oxypetalum hybrid to me.

    Nice pics, Larry! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] They are just beautiful.

    This has been posted before but I'll toss it back in. My understanding is nightblooming cereus are often NOT that. This was give to me by a neighbor as a nightblooming cereus.



    No matter what they are, they produce a spectacular flower. Mine start opening around 9-10 p.m. and take a couple of hrs to complete.
