These were three blooms on a plant which had over 20 blossoms which bloomed over three nights and the fragrance filled the whole house!

@terrafirma That is correct. These are descendants of my grandmother's plant.

Tara, I am indeed lucky. After my brother passed away and we were cleaning up the yard, DH came up to me with a pot that held an extremely ugly plant, and said, "I'm going to throw this thing away," to which I replied something like, "Over my dead body." I had recognized it as my grandmother's epiphyllum. It had been a very long time since I had seen it, but somehow I recognized it. Anyway, we cleaned up the pot and put it under a tree to spend the summer. I took cuttings and brought them back to Hot Springs where I was rewarded with these beautiful blooms several years later.

What a wonderful story! And I'm so glad that you posted the pic. of the pot using a tomato cage for support. That's a great idea that I'm going to have to put into use! Thumbs up

@terrafirma The next time you eat bananas, slice up the peels and put them on your epi. Seems to work for me.
