Trichocereus blooms

My night-blooming Trichocereus pachanoi bloomed last night! The flower was 7" across by 9 1/2" long. It smells heavenly!

I took these pics this morning before it got too hot...

It's so beautiful! Does your night-blooming Trichocereus pachanoi form seed? I'd like to trade for some if it does.

They're not hard to grow, but out of the 7 or so plants I have of this species, this is the only one that flowers consistently year to year. It has never produced seed; maybe it's not self fertile. I have seen them for sale occasionally however at Lowes and Home Depot...
