Night blooming cereus

I have wanted this plant for a long time and now I have 4 of them. This is my first bloom ever. I went out tonight at ten and I had this wonderful bloom. It smells heavenly. I have four more buds. I can wait until they open. The third one is dark but it is a bud. It should open in about 5 days the last one should open in 2-3 days.

Thank you Dawn. I can't wait to get multiple blooms on it. I am rooting some leaves that broken off form one of my new ones. If you want one let me know and I will get it to you when one roots. They like shade so you can keep it inside in the winter.

Thank you Bluewolf. I got the bog lily at a plant sale last year for $1.25 for a gallon. I have another one that is not doing as well. I need to move it. A lady was selling all her plants. It bloomed three times this year. The first blooms were a light yellow, now they are white.

Wonderful job, those are beautiful plants and blooms in spite of the drought there! No drought here in Central Il., I think too much rain and not enough sun! But then, I AM from Colorado;)
Love ya gal!
