That's beautiful. It looks like a night blooming cereus but your pic was taken in daylight. Maybe there's some that bloom during the day? I know the night blooming variety can get really tall.

Karyn, on the Cactus forum, that's what the called it, Cereus, I guess the are related, I got the photo at 6 am, then later on in the day it wilted, they only Bloom for one
day, I kept a piece of it, just for the Bloom

I had one several years ago that just got too tall to manage. The blooms only lasted a few hours and would be completely wilted by daybreak.

Oh that is a nice one Elizabeth! I have the white one and never think of looking at the bloom until it is already wilted :-(

Karyn
mine got so huge, I was having trouble bringing it in & out
I gave it to a friend that has a GH, but I kept a nice size rooted piece of it
Eloise, I have the day Blooming & night Blooming Cereus, I was amazed how fragrant they are, you have too catch them right when they open,btw it's good to see you
