This one's name escapes me right now, but it's written down somewhere. This one is deadly!

Isn't that an epiphyllum ('orchid cactus')? Very pretty. Ours has never bloomed in the fours years we've had it. Just barely hangs on. Weird, as the xmas cactus does great in the same conditions.

'Starfire’
This plant is a cross between an Aporocactus and an Epiphyllum and has slightly heavier stems than an Aporo, but best of all has the large flowers of an epi. These are sometimes called 'Sun Cacti' because they do best in brighter locations than epis do (still no direct sun), and also take less space because the stems will hang straight down.

This is the information that came with this one!
