Nyctocereus

The name literally means "Cereus of the night", in reference to its characteristic nocturnal flowering. The suffix "cereus" indicates instead the erect habit of its only species - the Nyctocereus serpentinus - with thin stems that, as they get longer, tend to become creeping or climbing. It is particularly appreciated, however, mainly for its crested form, that is produced in nurseries, characterized by the long shaggy spine of a dark red color, that gives it a spectacular sculptural effect and makes it perfect for pot cultivation and decorating any environment. If you are patient enough to wait for the sunset, this cactus will amaze you with its large funnel-shaped flowers and exotic scent!
