Hallo, Can you identify the plant in the photo below - I believe it could be in the genus - Cereus, but are not quite sure what it is. It is a 'hanging' plant with 'litted' leaves. Night blooming, very fragrant flowers. The flowers and fragrance last only one night. Thank you Isabel

It does appear to be in the Cereus genus, but I would be unable to identify it exactly. You can take it to your local extension service, and they should be able to pinpoint it for you.
