damn, I wish I could take it for you. I have a Cereus myself I've had for almost 20 years. It and the pot weighs about 150 pounds or so, I drag it outside every spring after frost is over, and back inside just before first frost kisses it. It blooms for me in the evenings somewhere around August or September, depending on it's "mood". Mine is about 6-7 foot tall only because I won't let the arms grow too tall. One year it grew me an arm that put it at 10 foot 11 3/4 inches and I had 9 foot ceilings at the time. That's when I learned to cut the arms off, cure them and put them back into the pot with their mom plant. you could always let me baby sit it <g> madgardener

First of all, there is no such thing as Cereus peruvianus.
What is usually grown under that name is Cereus hildmannianus.
It is neither rare nor valuable. So don't expect to get any money for it.
Donate it to a local botanical garden. You can write it off that way.
