Flower buds early evening..


Late night...

Wow! beautiful! I remember staying up all night to take pictures of the first few blooms on mine. Then the plant was just a couple of feet tall and had few branches.
Now it is a huge mass of tangled stems!
What do you do to encourage blooms? Mine will bloom sporadically in early spring or late fall, but not a lot of blooms comapred to the size of the plant. I wonder why?
I feed it with high P fertilizer and have it root bound in a large 14" pot.
Any suggestions please?

RE: Epiphyllum Oxypetalum...

Thanks Malini.

Can you please email me your address.. I hope to send you and Sushmita, plants in the next week or two.

I don't know any special fertilizer, anything in handy!!!
I see that you have J. arabian nights.. is it big to spare cuttings?
