After 4 years my Epiphyllum Grace Ann is starting to bloom only one flower now but with lots more buds on her , it was worth the wait and I want more blooms

Simply gorgeous!

I hope mine blooms next year! But they are really worth the wait I think. Someone came to my door asking about mine. I don't even know how she saw it. She was so excited until I told her I got it in San Diego (hundreds of miles away). I gave her a cutting and a few web sites and she went away happy.

If it disappears I'll know where it went ;-)

Some people can smell epie miles away, I have a 6ft fence around my yard but some how people know I have epie growing, I enjoy talking about my plants and have been known to give away cuttings if I think they will really take care of them

The color on that one is outstanding! I lost a lot of mine in the hurricane, we set them on the ground so they wouldn't blow away, then got 4' of salt water for 2 days. I'm slowly rebuilding my collection.

Thanks for the pic!

Pat, I've been using Fafard potting soil for little over 6 years and have really good luck with it, its got bits of bark in it that makes it drain well and my plants don't dry out as fast, I use the reg. potting mix they put out for all my plants,its all most a compost looking mix, there a link on the site to find out who sells in your area

Here is a link that might be useful: Fafard
