Large-Flowered cactus (Selenicereus grandiflorus) is a proud member of the Cactaceae family. This plant is common in the southeastern United States, Mexico, and the islands of the Caribbean. It is an epiphyte that grows on trees and rocks. Fortunately, you can also grow this flowering beauty at home!
Large-Flowered cactus has long creeping greyish-green sprouts. In its natural habitat, Selenicereus grandiflorus can reach up to 33 feet (10 m) in length. The nodes often twist into barbed balls. The stems of the plant are slightly wavy. Small areoles are covered with fluff and thorns, which fall off as the plant grows older. Fruits are egg-shaped and purple.
