I have had one of those for years and years, and it has never bloomed. Maybe it doesn't get cold enough in the desert for it? It makes me sad because it is suppose to have a huge red bloom, but I've never seen it. Shrug! Sad Shrug!

GardenguyAZ, your epi will bloom when it gets rootbound. you can always give them a bloom booster fertilizer in the spring.
