Question for Wallisadi

I think this is a plant that I got from you at Silvia's party. As you can see it's doing great but I can't remember what it is. And do you know what the little round things growing off the leaf in the picture are?

I have several of these. I cannot remember the correct name, however, it is a cactus from Bolivia. The little round things growing at the edge of the leaves are seeds. You can either let them dry out and plant or smear on a piece of tree fern. It will stay a nice green color if you keep it in the shade or that red color if kept in the sun.

Seeds?! I didn't even get to see it bloom! Does it bloom at night?

I got some from wallisadi, too. If it's the same plant, it's Night Blooming Cereus. Mine has flowered a few times, but no seeds (that I saw). Here's a pic of mine:

Karalynn: Your plant is pseudorhipsalis ramulosa - no surprise that some simply call it mistletoe cactus. - June

I have this vining succulent all over my greenhouse. It was traded to me as night blooming Cereus. Only my white-blooming one has flowered.

Thank you, Juneroses, for the ID! No wonder I didn't notice the flowers, they're tiny!

RE: Question for Wallisadi

OK, then I have mine mis-labeled - mine have fist-size blooms.

RE: Question for Wallisadi

Mine do too, Kay. Fist-sized blooms on what is labeled "Night Blooming Cereus."

I nabbed this pic from the internet... Now I want to hang mine!

RE: Question for Wallisadi

All of mine are hanging. I need to count and see how many I now have. A fellow gardener sent me five different ones several years ago and they just keep multiplying!

RE: Question for Wallisadi

I need more places to hang plants. Seriously.
