Hi May,

That is Cereus peruvianus originated from the tropical grasslands. This cactus will flower gregariously throughout Singapore usually during our National Day. Very nice flowers! I gather that it blooms at night. But the picture seems to be rather bright. When do u take this picture?

Hi May,

How lucky for your cactus to bloom during the day where you can admire its glory when it is fully opened. Do post again when your 2m tall cactus bloom. How old are they now?

Good Growing!

Hey! That is fast. The cactus should love you a lot by blooming so early.
