Epiphyllum, also known as Orchid Cactus, is a jungle-leaf cacti or leaf-flowering cacti native to Central America. My grandmother gave my Epiphyllum to me when she moved from her house into a retirement home. Each spring I await its glorious blooms.
Epiphyllum blooms on the ends of its long, strappy leaves. I am so tempted 11 months out of 12 to get rid of this plant because it is so big and also prickly but when I see its flowers each spring I don’t have the heart to get rid of it.
Are you familiar with this plant?
