Epiphyllum oxypetalum 'Night Blooming Cereus' Orchid Cactus - The Orchid Cactus is a bizarre and enchanting pass along plant. This easy-to-grow plant loves filtered sunlight and dry conditions. The sword-shaped, flattened leaves have nasty thorns along the edges, and don't give much to look at; however, the mid-March burst of blooms makes up for this inconspicuous appearance. In the peak blooming time, some leaves can get up to 1 1/2 to 2 feet in length and completely covered with flowers, making it very showy. The beautiful open-faced, 7 inch blooms make the Orchid Cactus very appealing. Water thoroughly and allow the soil to dry out a little between waterings. When grown in the landscape, plant this succulent in partial shade. Orchid Cactus makes a great container plant for patios, porches, gazeboes, etc. Orchid Cactus is a unique, all-around plant and does great in hanging baskets.Special Plants are those that we think are unique and interesting. We offer them to the adventurous gardeners who would like to add more tropical interest and color to their garden or home. Stokes Tropicals has carefully chosen a wide range of exciting tropical plants that are easy-to-grow, that are not commonly available, that have some unusual horticultural interest, and can be successfully grown in containers.
