Cactus, night blooming cereus, Cactus Arrangements, 4″ potted plant, Cactaceae, Outdoor Gardening
Name: Night Blooming Cereus
Scientific Name: Epiphyllum oxypetalum
This climbing perennial cactus is best positioned somewhere visible at night, as it flowers nocturnally, only for one night, and the flower wilts before morning, and you won’t want to miss seeing it. The flowers it produces are pure white and fragrant, and it will also produce an edible fruit although the fruit itself isn’t very large. This is the most widely cultivated species of the genus Epiphyllum, and for good reason, easy care and beautiful flowers make this an excellent houseplant.
