Epiphyllum oxypetalum flower

I think that one flower already bloomed last night and I missed it. The other one is blooming now. Amazing, this cactus lost so much mass due to illness this year, and bloomed anyway. What an amazing looking flower. First photo is 5 pm, second photo is at 9 pm.

  1. I have found they bloom best when pot bound and stressed somehow. Good thing both flowers didn't bloom the same night. It would have been too sad to miss it entirely!

  2. Thanks Carol. Looks like we have similar taste in odd plants!
