Unfortunately, I didn't get pics of the flowers. I have taken some pics in the past. I just have to catch the flowers open at around 11:00 p.m or midnight. The flowers only bloom at night like Dragon fruit.

I must have it confused with something else... it happens! lol.. Does the dragonfruit flower have a scent?...

No, the dragonfruit doesn't have much of a scent, either. The only one I know which has a really good scent is Epiphyllum 'Golden Charms' I have many. It flowers a lot and the flowers have a very sweet scent.

Here's a pic:
