Selenicereus is named after the Greek moon goddess “Selene.” This was because flowers under this genus open at night. Selenicereus plants are vine-like as climbing plants, but some grow in rocks. The fascinating flowers under this genus can exceed 12 inches in diameter and might have long and slender floral tubes. This genus is native to Mexico, Central America, the Caribbean, and South America. You may expect to provide a wetter environment for this genus to thrive.
