Night-blooming Cereus photo
I have a large Night-blooming Cereus that bloomed for the first time for me the first week in October. A friend gave me a small piece last year and it's really grown. It had about a dozen blooms in all, but if you want to see them, you have to go out at night. I keep it on my porch until the weather begins to get cold, then I bring it into the house. Here's a photo of one of the blooms.
