I bought this epi as a cutting and the name given to me was '"Miami Red", however, I can't find this nane in the plant data base. Some help please?

It's not yet added to the database, you can add it to be approved then add your photos. It certainly looks to be correctly named as some places are selling it, whether it's an officially named cultivar I don't know.

I found an Epiphyllum Society with registered cultivars, it's not listed so I don't know where that leaves you. Maybe you could contact bobsmoleys to see what they say, or the Society.

Hi I've just signed up to help out rocklady, the place to look would be the Epiphyllum Society of America's (ESA) cultivar directory unfortunately this is only available in print form directly from the ESA (the online list is far from extensive) however there are a number of groups on facebook where members chat and share bloom images and one might be willing to look it up for you

I will report back if I find anything out Thumbs up

Well there is no Epiphyllum 'Miami Red', There is a however an Epiphyllum 'Miami' which is red in colour, if that makes sense?

'Miami’ - TMM 1941 Red-violet. {S} Reg. #08254

A very nice lady on facebook pointed out that it's likely a mistake where someone has written the cultivar and then the colour down and somehow they've incorrectly come together.

hope that helps

Thanks so much, EpiGuy! Just got back from a long trip out to the west coast for family celebrations and found your nice reply. I was fortunate to see this bloom as my epis are very temperamental and seem to want to bloom while we are away from home. I missed several while we were on our trip.
