Cactus grandiflorus (Selenecereus grandiflorus) potted plant, organic
Family: Cactus (Cactaceaea)
Zones 10 to 12, otherwise grown as a potted plant indoors or greenhoused, protect from frost.
Native to the Caribbean. A rare epiphytic cactus. These make fast-growing house plants, requiring minimal sun, soil, and water. The spines are almost benign–I’ve handled them extensively and never been injured. Flowers are more likely to appear on specimens grown in the greenhouse. The flowers are very huge and white, intoxicatingly fragrant. They usually express for one night only, during the full moon. Traditional usage: Eclectic. Heart tonic. Cultivation directions: Cuttings are rooted into a 2 3/4 inch pot. Pot up to a gallon of cactus mix on receipt. Place in the greenhouse, or indoors in a light window. These will droop or climb, depending on the availability of a trellis (or the curtains!) Water once every 3 days during the summer, once every 3 weeks during the winter. Water more if the cutting is getting lots of light and heat. Water less if the cutting is getting only filtered light and room temperature. Growth of 3 or 4 feet in a season is not unusual. Space plants 2 feet apart.
