Night Blooming Cereus potting soil

lboyce(Z5NY)February 16, 2005

I am getting ready to transplant my NBC (epiphyllum oxypetalum) and do not know what type of potting soil this requires. Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Any garden center, home improvement store and often grocery stores carry Commercial Cactus & Succulent
mixes. Adding a little drainage material such as pumice or perlite to decrease the water retention works very
well. Good Luck!

Hi there! Thank you so much for your quick response. I have plenty of cactus soil. Not sure where I can buy pumice but I have perlite and vermiculite. I was getting confused about the difference between potting soil for epiphllums especially the NBC. Now if only I can have the patience for it to grow up!
