    I have several epiphyllium of varying size. One of which is quite large with one or two stems at least an inch wide. However, I have yet to have it flower. Any secrets?

    they only bloom on older growth, like 3 year old branches. i grow mine in peat moss. they like a nice bit of light, but not really direct sun. if you see the edges are getting a little tinge of red or purple, that's plenty of light. too much shade and no flowers. they love bright indirect light.
