Hi,

I was wondering if anyone can help me identify my plant.  It's a scruffy type cacti plant around 8ft tall.  Every year it produces buds from the leaves.  Currently 14 buds are due to open.  Buds take around 3 weeks to grow to around 3 -4 inches and when they are ready they start to curl upwards. Once they start to open in early evening it produce the most beautiful smelling pure white flower.  Size of a tea plate once fully open.  The sad thing is by morning the flower has closed and it starts to die.  We call it the Queen of the Night as it is just spectacular.  Does anyone know its full name? Or has one the same. 

 

Many thanks Sue
