Once you get your first Eppie to bloom you will be hooked on them. Very easy to care for and they will reward you with some awesome blooms.
Doesn't this look nice, matching pots all around. Thank You Rod!!
When I talked to my sister yesterday I told here I would put up more photos of our cactus for her to take a look at, so here is more photos for you to enjoy.
As the blooms fade then either drop or produce seedpods.
leaves shapes on one plant may also vary from long and round to really thin.
Partial shade or bright indirect light for best growing conditions in zones 8-9 and 14-24. Considered a tropical not a desert cactus. Plant needs rich, quick draining soil with sand. Let cutting base of cactus dry for a day or two before planting. Do not over water!! To over winter these, they need to be in a frost protected area. To fertilize these use a low-nitrogen fertilizer before and after blooming. Hope this helps.
We were surprised this past week when we found a couple more late buds on some of our eppies, it's really late in the season for them to set buds and bloom.
