I haven't managed an identification of the white one that I have confidence in, but I have a feeling that I will get there in the end. Very large flowers open in the evening, and then last for a couple of days. The first time it flowered I wasout there at 1-o-clock in the morning, doing pictures of it with a flash gun, because I was afraid that it would be over by the morning.

Fortunately, the next morning dawned bright and sunny, and the flower was still open!

My latest theory is that this is what is occasionally known as Epiphyllum cooperi. Current thinking would call it Epiphyllum crenatum var kimnachii 'Cooperi'.
