Just received a rooted cutting through the post. I was expecting something Christmas / Easter Cactus like but the leaf is as stiff as a board. Much more 'cactus like' I suppose. Good roots though, so fingers crossed. (I've put it in cactus compost).

Anyone else grow Epithyllums? If so, any tips?

I use to grow them treat them the same as Easter and Christmas cacti you not go wrong .
I had two large ones that where small but got to a 20 lt pot plant and gave them away as They where to big to do much much with any more. Just be care full when they are in flower as I found the necter tear drop can stain wood.

Thanks blondie - will do. They get to quite a size, don't they.

Just been having a closer look at mine and i notice it has 'Hookeri' written on it, so I'm guess it is not E. strictum after all. Edit: Although, they might be the same thing :confused:

No longer confused - it is the same thing :)
