Epiphyllum oxypetalum - Nightblooming Cereus

Epiphyllum oxypetalum - Nightblooming Cereus (Epiphyllum oxypetalum - Nightblooming Cereus)

I missed the blooming during the night. This Epiphyllum grows very large and upright to 10ft/3m or taller here in San Diego. It's also a very common plant in people yards. This is the firs time its bloomed since I got a cutting from my previous neighbor two years ago. Photo taken June 3, 2012.

Are there more to come, or was that it for the season?

It had three flowers and I've read it can bloom more than once a year. Unlike, some of the other which only bloom once a year (like my red and pink ones). I'll post a photo of the whole plant today. I have a white hybrid and a variety 'Golden Charms' which blooms 4 or 5 times a year. I really like the 'Golden Charms' because the flowers have a nice sweet fragrance.
