'Night Blooming Cereus'
The Night Blooming Cereus, commonly called Orchid Cactus or Queen of the Night, is a succulent plant that does well in pots or hanging baskets. The leaves are quite strange as they are wide and flat. The Cereus puts out a very strange looking bud that balloons and opens into a spectacular pure white bloom that can be 6" to 8" across! And it is not stingy with the blooms! The fragrance is intoxicating! Very Exotic looking plant but a child could grow the cereus!
