Does anyone have any pictures of the Epiphyllum Francesca variety or can come up with any link(s) to pictures of this flower?

So which Francesca is the right one. The two sites look different to me.

The Bagdad that I have blooming today looks different from the Karins Bagdad.

So confusing!

Those two pictures, purportedly of the Francisca, are definitely of different flowers and thus different varieties. I am still waiting and hoping someone has another link or has photos of their own Francisca flowers. Since I am starting my plants from cuttings, which I began rooting in November, I may just have to wait for these to finally grow enough to bloom. I have no idea how long that will take.

Ken, depending on the rate of growth on your cuttings there is an outside chance of blooms this year but definitely should get blooms next year.
How many Epis are you growing?

I got approximately a dozen cuttings, Epiphyllum Francesca and Oxypatalum varieties. I am quite sure they have all rooted now.

Thanks Ken. Smiling
I do have two huge Epi oxypetalum, I am really curious about the varieties of that. What distinguishes them from the species?

Y'all are asking the wrong person. I got some cuttings and rooted them. I know nothing about them. The names are simply what were with the cuttings.

I do have multiple cuttings but each cutting was accompanied by a label, and the labels show two varieties. That's all I know.
