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. :)
Is it night bloom one?
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.
Here is a link that might be useful:
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
Okay Brian.. now I have to find myself a cooperi too. That pic is so pretty!! : )
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)
