Night Blooming Cereus

Selenicereus grandiflorus


Some night blooming cereus growing epiphytically on a tree whos species I'm not sure of. The night blooming cereus is also known as the queen of the night, though these names are also used for several other cacti. It's so called because of its large white flowers that only bloom at night during the summer months.


Originating from the Antilles, Mexico and Central America. This plant is popular in cultivation for its night blooming flowers and has been introduced in places where it is cultivated.
