Every summer I enjoy the glorious blooms of the Epiphyllum oxypetalum. These beauties last just one night and if you encounter a sagging bloom in the morning, you know you missed out on something special.
I brought mine with me from Virginia and the trip was not kind to its foliage. Seeing the damage and stress to the plant I wasn't sure I would have blooms this summer. Yesterday afternoon I noticed the buds turning their faces upward....so I got the camera ready!
Five fragrant blooms opened last night! I owe some of the success of the blooms to putting a banana peel or two into the soil. It works for me. I have more buds getting set and I imagine they will bloom in September.
In the morning, this is what is left----kind of sad.
I should add --If you are interested in a cutting, let me know. I will be doing a pruning again this year.
