    Epiphyllum are called the "Orchid Cactus". They are a succulent more than a cactus, I believe. They produce beautiful flowers, usually open only at night. Many have a wonderful fragrance.

    It's a night-blooming cereus! And hi there, Scott! Good to see you here!

    Although from the title of the thread, I thought maybe the crock had a new ED perscription...

    I got a cutting of my biology professor's plant 25 years ago and gave it to my mom for mother's day. She lived on Long Island at the time, and each summer it would get one bud.
