'Space Rocket'

Epiphyllum Space Rocket Epiphyllum Space Rocket

The largest flowers of all our Epiphyllums - up to 14” across! Racy hot-pink flowers with a radiating orangey-yellow center are breathtaking in flower. This low-maintenance epiphytic cactus needs little care to produce its jaw dropping blooms in late Spring. Provide bright shade or morning sun only - under an overhang or tree is perfect. Allow to dry out a bit between watering, but don’t let them go totally dry. Fertilize monthly before and after bloom. Best grown in a container – not too big – they bloom best when crowded and can stay in the same pot for many years. Makes a bangin’ hanging basket or houseplant and the angular, evergreen foliage looks good year round. From the collection of Strybing Arboretum. Welcome to Bloomtown!
