Q.Should I remove spent night blooming Cereus blooms?

Zone 28557 | Anonymous added on August 18, 2020 | Answered

I have a large plant that had 13 blooms open last night, with 5 or 6 more to open tonight. I am wondering if I should remove the spent blossoms today, or let them fall off on their own.

It's your preference. If you like a tidier look, go ahead and remove them. They only bloom for one day, so after opening in the evening, they wither by morning.
