I repotted my selenicerios grandiflora into a ten inch pot this year and it has rewarded me with eight flowers opening together.

No, I did think about it, but they are easy to propagate from cutting. I didn’t think Judy would want anymore growing across the ceiling!

Stunning! How long did the flowers stay open? Plus, what was the smell like? I've grown other night flowering (All 'Queen of the night's:-) ) cacti but never this one.  How many years till next time now!!

Unfortunately the flowers only stay open fo a few hours. On the plus side it does seem fairly easy To grow and flowers every year. I don’t have much of a sense of smell, but i’v Been told it’s quite a pleasant scent.

this is what it looked like in the morning...

The first time my Epiphyllum oxypetallum flowered this was all I saw! The bud opened much quicker than I expected and I only saw the morning after. Your selenicerios looked good with so many flowers at once.

For years I had an oxypetallum  and though I could grow it, it never flowered for me and eventually ended up on the compost heap!
