What is the plant
The plant (also known as columnar, hedge cactus) has the scientific name of Cereus peruvianus. It can produce white flowers in summer that open up at night, once it matures and a prominent ribbed column stem, with brown colored spines, is displayed.
There are a few varieties which get confused with this cacti, because they have similarities and grow with a column stem. The funnel shaped flowers are beautiful looking, which grow up to 6in - 8in long and white or pink in color. These flowers will open up during the night and close at morning time. The thick stem is a green and greyish cacti color, with brown spines, growing from the edge of the stem ribs. They are grown outdoors up to 30ft in height (in the correct climate) and can be kept to a height that suits an indoor room, with pruning.
