Unfortunately I have a beautiful pink orchid cactus that is a NOID. Is there a place for that in the Database?

Yes, I think so. Not too familiar with these, do I have another choice? If I show you a picture will that help?

JB, The one that I know as Orchid Cactus is the Epiphyllum but I think there are a couple of others commonly called "Orchid Cactus" also and the blooms look a lot alike. Epiphyllum and Disocactus are a couple but I think there are more than just those two genus' that have the common name of Orchid Cactus: http://garden.org/plants/search/text.php?q=Orchid+Cactus&but...

We have some very knowledgeable folks over on the Epiphyllum forum who may be able to help determine by viewing a photo whether yours is an Epiphyllum or Disocactus, etc.: http://garden.org/forums/view/epi/

I remember when we added the Disocactus because that baby was mine...Big old red one that the CactiGroup ID for us.

This one is different with smaller flowers and I feel sure it is a Epiphyllum but I am going to talk to Ibartoo, she had given me the other two I have and hopefully she can help me. Thanks, my question is, do we have a general place to put NOID Epiphyllum if it turns out this is in fact one of them?

JB, can you post a photo here? Yes, the general entry for Epiphyllum is where we can upload photos of those with no ID: Epiphyllum (Epiphyllum)
