Oreocereus celsianus (Viejo hombre de los Andes)
My pink cactus in bloom.
I can't get mine to bloom - any secrets?
It needs to be exposed to cool temperatures (around 50-60 degrees) for a couple weeks to trigger its blooming cycle.
Does this one have a name? It is a lovely colour.

This is the Night Blooming Cereus; I'm aware of medium-sized linear leave and a plant that grows unpredictably willy-nilly and gets very large.
Thank you Joyce!
Of course I meant 'medium-sized linear LEAF . . .'
They grow in Hawaii ( I'm told )
