Orchid Cactus

Here is my Orchid Cactus (Epyphillum). It will be a while before it's as big or beautiful as Sally's!

The cutting is a year old and I got it from our friend, Rita D, at Belvedere last year.

I really enjoy nurturing plants from small beginnings. I think it makes successes more of an achievement. And it is great to look at this little cutting and be reminded of Rita.

They do become special when passed on from friends.

Bless your patience, I can barely cope with my seedlings and I must admit some are gone to a better home in the compost heap !!!

jacinta, Rita had at least 3 different varieties including the white one, so yours could be different.   I was so lucky to receive an actual plant of the white from Rita.  This morning I notice it has lots of buds on - it is highly scented.
