  •  Epiphyllums! Yay! (9+ / 0-)

    from now to June, boom they appear..and then they are gone.

    some google sites say that is also called "Easter Cactus", but Epiphyllums are a terrific family of flowers, many flowers, colors, leaf shapes.
      Most bloom at night, they glow in the dark, and some stay thru the next day. Some climb and sprawl, some stay small.

    My poor tortured ones are getting ready to bloom, the survivors (tough year)

    •  Is night blooming cereus in the same family? (9+ / 0-)

      this cactus is doing a lot of the weird things my old night blooming cereus used to do in the spring (leaves sprouting off of leaves, weird looking spikes, etc). Looks very familiar.

      •  yes but I can't say exactly (8+ / 0-)

        mr google will help a lot, it's probably complicated,heh, sorry I can't help out, but the discovery will be interesting for you and me too when I get up later.
        jungle cactus another name, Christmas cactus another cousin...and then there are the three sided plants that look like but may not be Epi's.

        Epiphyllum varieties are a big cottage industry like Iris and orchids...one you have one, you have to have more..and little chunks readily root so pretty soon you'll be like Mickey Mouse and the brooms on Bald Mountain.
