It's a Beauty
|The flower is huge and beautiful, but only last for a few hours during the night. When dawn arrives the flower has closed and will now die or if you are lucky it may form a fruit.|
Epiphyllum oxypetalum is epiphytic and can grow up to 10 feet tall. It can be propagated from tip or joint cuttings and seed. The flowers are 7 to 10 inches long and are very fragrant. They smell like vanilla. If you get lucky, you may have a flower that turns into a fruit and you can save the seed.
|The fruit that formed is a beautiful magenta color. This was the first time that my plant produced a fruit.|
|The little black dots inside the fruit are seeds. The fruit is edible.|
This is a plant that I would recommend and one that is worth staying up for a night to enjoy!
