Night Blooming Orchid Cactus Epiphyllum
Orchid Cacti that blooms usually in the summer. The flower buds begin to open around five in the evening and bloom through the night lasting only until sunrise.
Has a fragrance that is spicy-sweet and is very strong in small areas. A very beautiful flower that quickly goes limp after blooming.
Easy to grow indoors with good light and outdoors in mild climates. Mostly treated like an Orchid when comes to water and fertilizer.
Cuttings may be taken and placed directly in soil for starting a new plant. Roots quickly in cactus mix. My experience takes about three years for first bloom from cutting.
