My family's legacy house-plant. I've had this plant for about 40 yrs--came from a cutting of my grandmother's plant when I was a child; she got hers from my great-great aunt. Gotta love it! See, I grew up thinking it was normal to let a vine consume at least one interior wall, maybe two ;)

What an astoundingly amazing banner Dirt! One picture is worth a thousand words. This one is worth 2,000.

Very beautiful. It shows why this plant is also referred to as 'wax flower'.

Dirt, what a lovely plant and gorgeous banner. I love legacy plants. I have an epiphyllum that was my grandmother's.

I don't even have the words to describe this one. It is beyond amazing! What detail, and now that I know the history behind the plant, it is even better!

Hurray! Hurray! Hurray! Hurray!

The move? oh my--I am trying to figure out how many moves--at least nine that have been traumatic enough for me to remember so I am going to quit thinking about that and go back to hoping that I don't ever have to move again Hilarious!

This banner makes me want dessert. The centers of the blooms remind me of something, but I can't remember the name....not jello or pudding...maybe a combo of the two?? Dang...wish I could remember because I want some...served cold and not that much of a taste...maybe almond?? Thumbs up
