Another of our new Orchid Cacti cuttings is showing off.
This one surprised me. The bud did not seem to grow
when we first got it. And as a cutting, I did not expect it to.
Unlike the Iridescence cutting that
started opening the day we brought it home,
this guy's bud was very small. Once we got it in the pot however
it was a different story. The pad perked up and the bud got bigger
and, as you can see, it is very happy now.
I saw your post in the Yahoo Epi group. Although I'm by no means an expert, I too grow and love epis. They can be a challenge here in Ojai and I lost several to our cold winter, but I "keep on keepin' on" with them. Yours are (as the subject says) gorgeous!
