Here is my aporocactus hybrid "moonlight",
flowering for me the first time this past
summer, Took three years from the time I got
it as mess of broken short stems to grow and
bloom well for me, she gave three beautiful
flowers in a row, I hope for more next year!
There are many forms and colors of Aporocactus
available ,though much lesser known than their
wide flat leaf like stemmed
epiphyllum hybrid cousins, the major difference
between the two is the stems, which are long and spiny
on aporocactus, sometimes earning it the names of
dog tail cactus, rat tail cactus, et.c.
So if you ever see a mess of what looks like
some kind of jungle cactus hanging in a forgotten
corner in a nursury, look twice, you could be passing up
a real beauty!
