A cool alternative to the traditional idea of a potted plant. The Epiphyllum Oxypetalum, also known as 'Queen of the Night', has firm, structural stems that create great looking shapes. We've paired it with our new Ethnic vase, for a truly funky look!
Epiphyllum are a member of the cactus family but they don't look much like the classic cactus. They have flat leathery stems that grow somewhat haphazardly and can reach more than 50cm in length. This plant is commonly known as Queen of the Night for its most famous feature - seen when the plant is mature - its spectacular fragant white flower that appears only at night and for one night only before receding.
Epiphyllum are tropical plants and enjoy warm humid conditions and bright indirect light for at least several hours per day in order to grow well. Water the plant every week or so when the top inch of soil is dry, as the Queen will not tolerate being too thirsty!
These plants have a kind of cult status among those who love the thrill of seing its flowers. Even if you're not lucky enough to have it bloom, it will still add a bunch of character to your display.
Important to know: As plants are natural products, form, pattern and colour will vary.
