Epiphyllum are epiphytic cacti as their name suggests. Some call them orchid cactus due to their large bright blooms and growth habit.
They are not cold hardy and generally can be found only as houseplants or greenhouse specimens. Caring for Epiphyllums is a water balancing act. They can’t be allowed to dry out, yet overwatering is a death sentence to these cacti.
Epiphyllum make excellent hanging baskets with their jointed stems that grow 18 to 30 inches long.
You will receive a rooted plant 20+ inches long.
Plants are sent bare root.
They perform well in standard potting soil amended with peat and sand. Use clean sand, not the saline laden sand from a beach. They can be fussy about their water, so use bottled or de-mineralized water to prevent unfavorable reactions to treated tap water. Sorry No sales to California, Arizona, or Hawaii
PLEASE NOTE******* Winter shipments, you must let me know if it's too cold to ship to you so we can make arrangements to hold your plant for you until it is warmer. I can not ship to you when the temps are at freezing. This plant won't survive that temp.**********
