    Default Epiphyllum Lepidocarpum Hybrid

    This is my Epi.Lepidocarpum which is bearing 3 buds on one poor leaf. I am sure the leaf will take a long time to get plump again. I have 3 plants in all, which I divided two years ago and bore 18 blooms distributed equally. Because after division they tend to grow top heavy before bearing any florescence they are now busy out growing themselves. Here is a picture of how it looks like now and I will post the pictures of the blooms as they open in the coming week or two. The fragrance is very lemony and in the wild, bats do most of the pollination. Each flower can be 9" in diameter.

    That is beautiful. I can only imagine the fragrance. I once had a large plant of Mid-night cereus and looked forward to it's blooms. Had to leave it behind when I moved as it was planted in the ground.
    Are all those cuttings on the table waiting to be planted? I need one!!!

    Hi Angela, yes the cuttings are waiting to be planted; they go online for auction and seem to be popular here in the UK as well. There is a night blooming cereus growing in the background. If you look carefully in the first picture of set 2, it is on the rightmost of the picture. Long snake like leaves, I got a 6' cutting of a main stem from a local Chinese a year ago.

    Angela, you don't have to buy one. I'll simply give one to you. A cutting can survive up to two months and I can vouch for that. The only downside is that it should be a fresh cutting, once it starts to develop roots it will have to be planted. All my cuttings have put out roots. And with the customs it is difficult to say that it will make it through. Some countries do allow plants but to be absolutely sure it would be worth looking online. These cuttings travel in the UK and around EU without any problems.

    Thank for the offer, Gurj. I agree with you about the Customs. That is way too much trouble. I would have to get an Import Licence, and all the Cites certs etc. Way to much hassel.
    Thank you for the offer.
    Angela.
