Selenicereus grandiflorus is an impressive cactus plant, which does not require much care. It`s also known as Night-blooming Cereus and Queen of the Night. The plant is native to Eastern Mexico and the Caribbean.
Night-blooming cereus do well as indoor potted plants, though keep in mind that they can grow to be 10 feet tall. The funnel-shaped flowers can reach a length of up to 30 centimeters, but the flowering time is short-lived. Shortly before dawn, older specimens of the "Queen of the Night" open their flowers, but just a few hours later, they wither again. This event takes place only once a year and fascinates hobby gardeners and visitors of botanical gardens alike.
