The fragrant Epiphyllum oxypetalum flower is only seen at its best at night. The white flower usually wilts during the day.

Night blooming plants have a slightly different appeal. It may be because they are so rare. Most plants rely on the work of bees and other small animals that mainly operate during the day. However, those that bloom at night cater to different species.

The Night Blooming Cereus is a lovely plant with unusual leaves as well. The blooms are fairly delicate and they are soft to the touch. Seeing the cereus bloom open in slow motion is a real treat if you like exotic flowers.

You can get neat Epiphyllum oxypetalum cuttings with these Gardenite bypass pruning shears in spring and start them during that season. You usually won’t have a hard time growing a healthy plant using them. However, it can be a little harder to get the plant to thrive from cuttings at other times of the year, even if you live in in Jamaica or other parts of the Caribbean.

Planting the cuttings in a special cactus potting mix will be best. Ensure that any soil you use is moist but well drained. If it’s too wet it will cause the plant to rot. Make sure the Night blooming Cereus can get enough sun.

You don’t need to put it in direct sunlight but find a spot in your garden or on your porch that is warm enough. Gardenite pruners make neat cuts that help this soft plant to recover fast. When it’s too cool the plant doesn’t form roots as quickly. Always remember that the Epiphyllum oxypetalum need just a little bit of water and filtered, not direct sunlight.
