In 1994, I bought an Epi at a garage sale. 4.00.
lt took about 7-years before the first flower made an appearance.
Once it bloomed, (3-years after) during summer only one flower would grow. The last 4-5 years, it send out, at the minimum, 9-15 blooms per summer. Guess it needed time.
Here's a pic of the blooms my Epi produced over the years.
Flower opens at night, unfortunately, this is the best day time pic I have. Sorry.
Now, a couple weeks ago I noticed buds on the exact, same Epiphyllum.
Yesterday, I took pics after buds opened.
What in he world is going on?
Flowers are usually pink and white, 7-9" long. The flowers are now rounder, and deep red.
Does anyone know why and how they'd change? This Epiphyllum has been in the exact same light, getting the exact same care.
