Epiphyllum ID help? w/pic this time

northernellieOctober 9, 2007

The grower said the Epiphyllum had white flowers and that it got much bigger. It's got a very upright habit. It's about 10" tall now. The ends of the leaves were redder (but not drastically) when I got it, I presume because of higher light conditions.

Ah, sorry, forgot blooming time... grower said late summer/early fall.

I believe there are hundreds of Epi hybrids out there. Even with a photo of the bloom, it might be impossible to nail it exactly. Plants look very healthy though!

Ah, well that's unfortunate. Is it any help that the grower said it came from an elderly lady many years ago? Are most of those hybrids new?

Based on the lack of crenate edges, I would say what you have is a "cooperi". The blooms will emerge from the soil line, not from any of the aeroles.
