For those of us who have Epiphyllum oxypetalum, it is exciting to watch as one of the giant white flowers opens up as evening rolls in. These flowers only remain open for one night. If in the morning you see a limp bud hanging on the stem, you missed it!! Last year's first bloom opened on July 11th. This afternoon I saw the bud and thought that it may be opening tonight.....so glad I caught it! There are three more buds ready to bloom, perhaps in about three days. Carol at May Dreams Gardens had one open earlier this week. I believe this is one plant I will be bringing to South Carolina!
UPDATE----Three blooms opened the next night!!!! Guess my estimate of a couple of days was off.
