Oh my god! What a profusion of blooms!!! :flowers:/> Any tips to obtain such a spectacle?

This cactus is also rather common in Singapore. Do you know the scientific name of the cactus?

Congrats... and enjoy your blooms! :hehe:

Cereus peruvianus. This cactus comes from the tropical grassland and can be grown and flowered in Singapore. As this cactus flowers gregariously, it is likely some of its members in Singapore might also be flowering too.
