DISCLAIMER

  1. The actual plant may differ as each pot has its own unique natural look and though look identical but never 100% similar to the image pictured here.

GENERAL INFORMATION

  • The pendant stems crown with spectacular flowers that last only a couple of days but produce from early winter through spring.
  • They are a peculiar plant that flowers best when exposed to cool temperatures and shortened light periods.
  • An interesting bit of Epiphyllum information is that they grow edible fruit.
  • The fruit is said to taste much like passion vine fruit and has a texture similar to kiwi, including the small black seeds.

SOIL REQUIREMENT

  • In cultivation, they perform well in standard potting soil amended with peat and sand.
  • Use clean sand, not the saline-laden sand from a beach.

FEEDING/FERTILIZER REQUIREMENT

  • In February when growth begins again, start with mild but regular feedings of weak liquid foliar cactus fertilizer solutions every two weeks during growth.

LIGHT REQUIREMENT

  • Like the summer-flowering tuberous begonia, these are “shade plants” only in hot climates.
  • They can spend the summer near a protective north wall or in the dappled shade from a tree.

WATER REQUIREMENT

  • The plants need constant moisture in the air and for the roots.
  • They can be fussy about their water, so use bottled or de-mineralized water to prevent unfavorable reactions to treated tap water.
