Thanks for the pictures. I love hens and chicks. They are easy to care for and very beautiful.

Pics coming soon.

Your cactus looks like a Trichocereus hybrid, which is from the Andes in Ecuador, Chile, and Argentina. Is yours a night bloomer? Most of the white Trichoceri are nocturnal bloomers and some are really heavily fragrant. I have an Echinopsis which is a night bloomer and its fragrance does not start until about 10 PM. The flower wilts by 9 AM the next morning.

It stared blooming as the sun set. It smelled like a strong easter lily. The flowers lasted about a day and a half. Thanks for the info

Sounds like you really do have a Trichocereus. Your grandmother may have been given one, or purchased it a while ago. Unless she's been to South America!

I'll have to ask her again. She thinks it's 1950 so she might remember. They did travel a lot. Who knows.
