Nighttime Beauty

There is a bloom about this large that is on a thinner cactus called Queen of the Night. I have a very small one in the yard.  I'll take and post daytime pictures of the two...This is also out front and I thought about shooting the bud as it looked like it would open soon.
Here it is shortly after sunset.

Here it is fully open around 9 p.m.
Apparently this is Harrisia jusbertii
It was still open in the morning

This is the Queen of the Night
It is very small right now, but as it grows it doesn't really get much thicker so it will need some support.

I have a Queen of the night in mi kitchen. I sqwed it eight years ago and no flowers yet. I really wants to move it to a better place, but I´m afraid it´ll kill me if I try :-) :-) :-)
Have a great day now!
