This plant can handle high temperatures of 100 degrees F if you give it a bit of light shade to prevent sun scorch. If the temperature is going to drop below 50 degrees F, you may want to bring it in. Since it is a cactus, it doesn't like to sit in soggy soil, so water its well-draining soil when it feels dry. https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/cacti-succulents/night-blooming-cereus/night-blooming-cereus.htm
