Hi. I have many night blooming cereus. I live in Southern California. Many of them have been getting something that starts out as circular splotches, then it eventually kills the leaf. I need help before it kills all my plants. Thanks

Welcome! to NGA

It could be Epiphyllum Mosaic Disease. Its a plant virus spread by aphids and other sucky bugs.

There is no treatment, just prevention. I would start by quarantining the affected plants.
