The crested shape of this fan-shaped cactus remains smaller, than the classic Nyctocereus. The scientific name of this plant is Peniocereus serpentinus, but it is also commonly called "queen of the night", due to its unusual habit of blooming at night, producing very fragrant flowers, which are rather large, of a white color, with pink shaded margins. Precisely its much loved inflorescences are one of the main reasons, why this cactus is grown. It is a very spiny cactus, of a typical light green color, with brown-reddish, thin and prickly spines.

Plant care:

It likes very bright places, however, avoid direct sunlight during the hottest hours of the day.

It is preferable to keep it at mild temperatures and never below 8 °C, for this reason it is recommended to shelter it during the winter period.

Water moderately and only when the soil is completely dry. It is enough to water it once a week in spring and summer, reduce it to once every two months in autumn and to suspend it completely in winter.

The best soil is a well-draining one, even better if further enriched with inert materials such as pumice, sand or lapilli.

They do not need frequent fertilization, it is sufficient to dilute the fertilizer with watering once a year.
