    Yours turned out lovely, Tami.

    Bruce, These night blooming cerus seem to like being pot bound. I put a couple in the ground when we moved to this house and they pouted terribly.
    Just got back from the AOS in Delray Beach, all I can say it WOW !!!! Will post pics when I get unpacked.

    Those are some beautiful flowers. They look more lotus like than cactus like to me. Cin is such a great friend!!

    You got that right about Cin! You meet some of the coolest people on this forum.

    The fragrance is very perfumy, almost gardenia like but not quite as strong. It's odd - if you put your nose right up to the flower the scent is different, almost unpleasant.

    Gin, I know what you mean. I moved mine so the street light wouldn't shine on it.
