This post is as much to remember as it is to share, because I will inevitably come searching this site when the ink fades on my cuttings.

These “orchid cacti”, epiphyllums or “epis” are from Epiphyllum World, which had a booth at the 2014 San Francisco Flower & Garden Show

I’ve had really good luck with a single cutting my friend Cheryl gave me years ago. It’s an unknown red variety. I almost lost it when it got left behind after I moved about five years ago, but I was later able to rescue it and it thanked me by finally blooming again this year. Sometimes, it takes us plants and people awhile to get our mojo back, but we’re back, baby.
