    We have a large Argentine Giant cactus in our front yard that blooms once or twice a year. The flowers are very large and really look incredible. It's a shame they don't last for more than a day or two.

    Shout out to @Yvonne G for helping me ID this one a couple years ago.

    They're not toxic, but you only get to see it so rarely why on earth would you waste it on a tortoise?

    They don't like it. It has an extremely strong, soap-like, fragrance. I can smell it clearly from about 30 - 40ft away.
