My Epiphyllum White NOID bloomed!

I’ve been growing several Epiphyllums that I got as cuttings for the past two or three years. One finally rewarded me with a bloom this year. I’m in love with this plant. Some people probably wouldn’t be as excited as me since it’s just a white flower and a NOID. Some people are plant snobs and only want named varieties for some reason. Being a named variety doesn’t make the plant more beautiful, just worth more as cuttings or started plants. White flowers are my favorite too, so that’s a plus! This one has grown into such a nice plant and looks like it’s pushing out a few more blooms. I should have more flowers next year I’m hoping since they are getting older.

Rocks.

I have a rock and stone obsession. There I said it. I have a absolute love for rocks and stones. If It’s interesting and I can carry it home it comes! I don’t think most people pay attention to the ground. I also live in Arkansas and we have lots of rock! I find them mostly at the creeks and rivers when I’m fishing. I find some while going on walks on dirt roads. Here’s all I’ve found in the last couple month’s. So many color variations an textures. Some of these I will use to stage my succulents and cacti. I’ll say some stuff about my finds. Like where I found them and if I plan to use them for staging.

Stetsonia coryne

Family: Cactaceae (kak-TAY-see-ee)

Genus: Stetsonia (stet-SOHN-ee-uh)

Species: coryne (ko-RY-nee)

Common Name: Toothpick Cactus

Light: Full sun to partial shade.

Water: Let dry between watering

Stetsonia coryne is a tree forming cactus from South America. Usually has a main trunk forming several side branches. They have a blueish color to their flesh. They have long spines which gives it the common name Toothpick Cactus. They like full sun to partial shade. How much a cactus needs depends on your environment. During the hot days of Summer they need regular watering. During Winter they should be kept dry and on the cooler side. In a cool room or greenhouse where they can get some needed rest. They should still get good light. I’ll do a more detailed post on plant care. They are beautiful plants.
