Arthrocereus mirabilis

Arthrocereus mirabilis

Arthrocereus (Setiechinopsis) mirabilis is a strange plant. Their solitary brown stems and their - not necessarily justified - reputation for being short-lived can put some people off growing these Argentinian plants. On the other hand they grow easily from seed and readily produce their unusual flowers. The striking white flowers open in late evening, dying by the next morning and the scent has be experienced to be believed!
