Yes ppm, Jenny has three of them, we love them, they are inside.
Robbie, do you grow epiphyllums in Bermuda?
Hi ppm, I solved this couple of days ago and no comment. Maybe I forgot the post button, but has happened a few times recently. Well anyway a gorgeous flower and thank you, enjoy your weekend.
It's funny Varda, we had some leaves that fell off and settled in some gravel for the cat's litter that we use for keeping the moisture in the cactus pots. It is made of a kind of clay and binds the water. Those leaves are still there - now as a huuuge plant with lots of flowers. No earth, no nothing, just water and something to cling to!! They are happy!!
I'm delighted to learn that you have blooming epiphyllums, Hanne! Yes, they are very easy to care for. Mine are mostly not cared for, except for watering - - they are badly pot-bound, endure our scorching summers, and bloom on! Maybe I will try a few cuttings indoors when I get caught up on the tons of other stuff that needs attention!
I just googled them! We call them "leaf-cactus" and they are called cactus but also succulents. So have your choise!! HA, Varda, very soon we are having the same gorgeous flowers as this one. We have three huuuuge ones and they all have buds!! They are SO easy to handle indoor!! Give them some water sometimes and they take care of themselves!! Thanks so very much!
It is a succulent, similar to the Christmas cactus. It is my understanding that the true cacti all have thorns, whereas the succulents do not, so the epiphyllum is a succulent, not a true cactus. Our friend, Numberful David, can probably enlighten us on this subject!
This is very lovely. Is it a cactus of some sort?
