Sentient, thanks for the details on your plant. Thanks for the pronunciation. I looked in serveral dictionaries on line and none of them helped. It is a bit of a tongue twister: schlum BERG era. OK got it

Joan, that Epiphylum was about 5 years old in that pic.  I grew it from a cutting about a foot long.  They root really easily.  It's bigger now, I had to cut it back.  The blooms last a few hours.  They close in the early am.  the ephemeral aspect is part of the allure.

by the way it's schlumBERGera.  I think.  Although it was named for Frédéric Schlumberger, with emphasis on 1st syllable.

How old is your epiphyllum? What was its size when you got it? Is there any fragrance? It is so pretty, and blooms at midnight! How long does the bloom last?

That epicactus is beautiful!  I've grown epiphyllum and have a large one now.  It's so big, there isnt' room for it.  But it does have beautiful flowers.  At midnight.

There are hundreds of spineless cactus varities. Epicactus is another example

Nice Ode to Earthworms Dallas.  Wonderful critters that help the gardner a lot.

My mother always had a xmas cactus in the window when I was young.  I never thought of it as a cactus because it had no thorns.

Comment by amer chohan on November 21, 2012 at 8:28am

I thought twice to add it in my seedlist but forgot. Once I bought a small plant taking it as Christmas cactus but it turned out to be some opuntia.

Comment by Joan Denoo on November 21, 2012 at 1:52am

Oh! Is this Christmas cactus? Schlumbergera, I like that name. Where is the accent? 

Comment by Daniel W on November 20, 2012 at 8:41pm

Amer, do you also grow Schlumbergera cactus?  They are blooming like crazy here, right now.
