These Orchid Cactus plants get pure white, super fragrant flowers which open after the sun goes down and stay open all night, closing in the morning. These are long lived plants which often get shared via cuttings and the 'mother plants" get passed down through generations in families.

It blooms in waves during the summer months and the blooms have a wonderful, unforgettable fragrance. As the plants get older and larger, the more blooms you will have on any given night. (In my experience, these plants don't bloom the first year grown from cuttings and may take up to 3 years to bloom).

These are hardy to grow outside only in zone 10 or warmer, but are happy to grow in containers in part shade to mostly sun if protected from freezing temps in the winter.
