Epicactus 'Fifi'

Another Epicactus was blooming today: 'Fifi', a beautiful pink

And like I said earlier, the rains have returned. We'll be back to seasonably cool and wet for the next week.


  1. That is gorgeous! Someday I hope one of my plants will bloom too. Not sure what I am doing wrong, but I'm pretty sure I should probably be growing them differently.

    1. One thing about epicacti, they will flower for you. In general, they don't like to stay dry for long periods of time, a rule we violate most of the time through the Winter. We can't even get to the plants to water them most of the time. As a result our epis tend to get a bit ragged, but they do flower. (We help them out with a little 0-10-10 fertilizer in early Spring.)

      And since you're in Portland, we'd love to have you join up with the Oregon Cactus & Succulent Society :)

  2. Wow! Beautiful! And excellent photography,too.

  3. Thanks Marla. And the photo was by Lynn-Marie.
