There is only 1 item left in stock.

Epiphyllum strictum is a night blooming white epiphyllum with traces of pink back petals. It is a specie of the many epiphyllum which is a kind of cacti orchid but stems with no thorns. This plant is also called the ‘night queen,’ as its flowers bloom at night starting at 8 pm EDT to full blooms by midnight and close up by the following day.    The plant can be easily planted from the stem cutting. As for my experience, I planted mine with three stem cuttings of about 8-10" inches long. Having grown the plant for years, the plants are very large now. The first flower bloomed when the plant was about 1 1/2 years old and two feet tall. Since then blooming occurs at almost every year in the spring and summer.
