Cactus with large white flowers

I spent yesterday repotting. Like, the entire day. A lot of that time was spent just trying to come up with a list of what needed to be repotted in the first place, or what stuff might need to be repotted but would have to be checked first, or what stuff didn't need to be repotted so much as just divided and as long as I was dividing stuff anyway maybe I should take some cuttings of this thing next to it, and so on and so forth. The actual repotting of things only took maybe a couple hours, and when it was all over, I had 21 new plants (divisions and cuttings of things) and about as many old plants in larger pots. Which is great.

Unfortunately, my to-do list was about 150 items long yesterday (truth!), and this barely made a dent. So I am sad.

Anyway. This cactus was sitting around blooming last Friday when I was at the ex-job. I don't know anything about it beyond what you can see from the photos, but the flower is definitely interesting. Not that cactus flowers usually aren't.

Meachanisms to get pollinated. The older seed bearing plants the gymnosperms like pines and so forth are all wind pollinated.
There are many species of plants that are bee pollinated. They tend to be blue or white flowers and smallish often fragrant. Most plants in the rose family (fruit trees etc) are bee pollinated.
Large red flowers, especially trumpet shaped tend to be bird pollinated. If they are native to the new world, by hummingbirds and from the old world sun birds.
