This amazing epiphyllum, a member of the cactus family from the tropical rain forests of Central and South America, can be easily grown in your home. It is a fast growing plant and may show you many fragrant, dinner-plate size flowers as it ages. Sometimes called a night blooming cereus, but actually it is not of the cereus genus but is in the epiphyllum genus. It can also be called orchid cactus but is not an orchid at all.

Epiphyllum oxypetalum is the scientific name for this unusual cactus that is more commonly known as “night blooming cereus” or “queen of the night” because the blooms appear in the evening. The blooms can sometimes cover the entire plant and are spectacular. This unique cactus is easy to start from a cutting in early spring, when the Epiphyllum Oxypetalum is coming out of its dormant period.

Although it grows outdoors in U.S. Department of Agriculture plant hardiness zones 10 through 12, it's usually grown as a houseplant.
