The famed #RedOrchidCactus (Epiphyllum ackermannii) 😗😗😗
Guys, I’m tellin’ you, I gasped so hard I CHOKED when I saw how vivid these flowers were!
I was killed dead, and then resurrected by their beauty. 🕊 👼 They were #ethereal
Literally so red that my camera could not even deal. This image does no justice. I can not describe to you how mesmerizing they were. Unreal. My brain didn’t know whether to just look at them, or try eating them, or what! 😱???😵🤤🙃 I was shook!
...So in conclusion, I give this plant 12/10 stars. Truly a killer specimen. #mymy#perfectionDOESexist 👌👍👍 #twothumbsup
Aannnnnddd now this plant is on the top of my wishlist!
Proudest plant mom this side of the Mississippi (please witness my leafy daughter—she's eight years old and I miss her whenever I'm at college) [12:29 10/19/18] #epiphyllum
(Pianta strana l'Epiphyllum anguliger: la sua caratteristica è di creare lungo le foglie uno zig-zag che a volte è un angolo di novanta gradi perfetto) 🌵
I brought in my Selenicereus grandiflorus today as it’s expected to drop below 40° at night this weekend. I got this plant sometime in May last year at just over a foot (where my hand is in the second pic), no roots just a stem and now it’s more than tripled it’s length and is almost at chest leve. I have no doubt this will be mature enough to bloom in the next year or two. This and a few others like Epiphyllum oxypetalum (seen in the second pic) are known as “Queen of the Night” cacti. Don’t worry about the E. oxypetalum in the second pic, the leaf that it was started with is just dying back.
I thought I would take this time to share with you one of two blooms on my orchid cactus that so graciously opened up on this beautiful sunny morning!

Epiphyllum aka Queen of the night👀
This photo wasn’t taken by me but was sent to me from a teacher of mine.
A beautiful fragrant flower that blooms only one night each year😍I am so amazed by the fact that it only survives for one night and would wilt before dawn just brings me in awe.
So here it is...Sharing this beauty with you all. Hopefully one day I will own one and see it myself🤤

Queen of the Night 🌑🌵 #epiphyllum oxypetalum is a species of cactus and one of the most cultivated species in the genus. E. oxypetalum blooms rarely and only at night, and its flowers wilt before dawn. Wikipedia
So happy to have seen it bloom before my eyes just a few weeks ago...
