The large plant, night blooming cereus in the large black pot sitting on the ground is our most prolific bloomer. Sometime in July it will have at least 20 to 30 large white flowers. The scent will fill our garden and drift into our neighbors yards. This is an amazing plant. The flower buds open after dark and they are wilted to nothing soon after sunrise the next morning.

This isn't the Dragon Fruit Grammazoo. Our two Dragon Fruits are in the house in my kitchen bay window. I'll take pictures of them and post them soon.

Thanks! I started seeds and they have germinated; hopefully I will be able to keep them going. Any advice?

You started seeds of Dragon Fruit Grammazoo ? The only advice I can think of is carefull not to over water and a nice warm location with maybe a little morning sun. Number one thing is to have a lot of patience. It takes them a while to get going but when they do look out !
