    It is my spelling that is ignorant, not your question , I had to look up the spelling it is a epiphyllum also known as a Jungle Cactus . That is what I think it is , might be something altogether diffrent . Thanks to all for looking Gin

    I think it's neat. Do all the leaves bloom?

    Default Epiphyllum

    Have you ever tried growing an Epiphyllum oxypatelum? They grow pretty fast and have an INDREDIBLE bloom (I have heard of them reaching 35 cm across!). Mine hasn't bloomed yet, but I am hoping this summer/early fall.

    Know what you mean I have been avoiding the plant sites .. no will power . The fuzz ball has a lot of fuzzies on it right now . This one came from a box store . As usual no tag .
    ATester , I have that one , did have a big one at the other greenhouse before moving , for quite awhile I thought the buds were blasting . lol . didn't know they are only good for one night . Oh they smell so good . Gin

    Default The night time is the right time, the night time is the right time...

    I'm not quite sure what I am going to do when it blooms! Well, who knows, it may be on a weekend...my job requires that I get up fairly early (not early enough though, I would miss it by about three hours).

    red one but don't know if it is scented or not , My bet is not it has not bloomed yet . Gin
