My Epiphyllum cooperi cuttings are taking!

Robert (zone 7a, Oklahoma)August 8, 2013

Yay! I'm sure I'll have to wait years before they bloom but hopefully not as long as I've been waiting for E. anguliger to bloom!
I know fragrant2008 recommends E. cooperi for fragrance. :)

Hi, Greendou!

Yes. It's supposed to have fragrant blooms at night. :)

White color? like this ?
my Epiphyllum was not very fragrant when I went out about 10:00 pm, not sure at midnight. I will try next time.

Shoot. Posted the same message twice. Guess that's what I get for using my phone. Laugh.

Yes. E. cooperi's blooms are white.

You epiphyllum appears to be E. oxypetalum.

Learn a lot. Thanks, Robert.
Btw, your pot will be too small, it will grow to about 4-5 feet, and almost care free.

cool congrats Robert i say two or three years before your cutting flowers if well looked after :)
E. cooperi has a excellent fragrance i have mine in the orchid house and it wafts all through the house on the night it is open just a shame they are so short lived :(
they seem to do well in hanging baskets as they stay fairly small

think i posted a pic in july flowering as well.

E. oxypetalum on the other hand is a monster grows more like a small tree and the flowers are fragrant but no where near as good a cooperi
what size is your E. anguliger Robert? have you tried Feed high potash (Tomato fertiliser 2-10-10) Feb to April for blooms, then balanced feed (8-8-8) July to October. November to January no feed

Thanks so much for the tips, Brian!

I've been used a balanced Dynamite fertilizer and high nitrogen orchid fertilizer but next year I'm trying yours! :)

My beast is about 4ft across now. My partner loves the shape of its leaves but you know me I want blooms! Laugh.
I've always wondered if my Ric Rac Cactus might actually be Cryptocereus Anthonyanus. I actually bought a very tiny plant of E. anguliger from Logee's and shoved it into the big plant's pot I got from Almost Eden almost 3 years ago. :)

Hi kemistry it happens to us all on this forum i am sure its in the small print some where when you sign up :P i have just been looking into E. anguliger now Robert has mentioned it ( i knew it had to be fragrant) and the more i read the more i want one :)
just the fact Robert has not got it to flower is putting me off
nice healthy looking plant though :)
( only thing with the forum is half the things you mention i have never heard of or we can not get over here like Dynamite)
