I found a new vendor for Epiphyllum . Her cuttings are twice as large as Logees and her price is less. I just got three from Logee that were in 2,5 pots and I am afraid to look to see if they are beginning to root because they do not look all that great. I will post pictures as soon as my phone camera charges again. The new lady sends cuttings not rooted, so the price difference may be because Logees is rooted. We will see which ones survive and which don't. I have had very little luck with Logees lately and that upsets me since I have been dealing with them for years.
The new lady is Janet Lai, her name on Amazon is Speedy4Us, and her email is [email protected] or 909-229-0453 in case anyone is interested.

I see she also has an etsy shop: https://www.etsy.com/shop/Spee...

I googled and found a few sellers but I don't know anything about them:

Taylor Greenhouses sells Epiphyllum plants at what look to be wonderful prices, but no recommendations in our Green Pages yet.

Garden Jewels in California sells both rooted and unrooted cuttings as well as gallon sized plants: http://gardenjewelsnursery.com... but I don't know anything about this vendor.

Pacific Epiphyllum Nursery in California: http://www.pacificepiphyllum.c...

Epiphyllum World in California, you can order either on e-bay or by printing an order form: http://www.epiphyllumworld.com...

Matt's Landscape: http://mattslandscape.com/home...

Bob Smoley's Gardenworld but no recommendations yet.

garden.org member Steve https://garden.org/users/profi... Hills Epicacti is in Australia but I don't know if he ships to the U.S.

Lin, you are a bad influence on me. I am in a weakened condition just now, I keep wanting to buy plants and I just can not take care of many more. Rolling on the floor laughing Especially these giant monsters when they grow up. I just give them away to my Farmers Market neighbor and they make babies and sell them. Some of their hanging baskets of the old red one were gigantic and beautiful. These kids that run the greenhouse business both trained at Longwood Gardens and have the best time with some of the things I give them. Their plants and the arrangements they make plus their planters are just outstanding. They just ask me the other day what I am going to come up with next. Of course I am thinking. nodding

Have not purchased from anyone other than Logee and the new lady on Amazon. Here are the pictures of my six new babies. The individual big ones are those I got from Speedy4U. The tiny three are from Logee's.

Big difference considering these big ones were cheaper and packed beautifully and marked so much better than Logee's. They were all dry and the soil was partly out of the pots. I was really disappointed considering. I have noticed the last few orders I got from them were not up to their usual standards. In fact I lost the last three plants I got from them. Not sure why? The plants have picked up since yesterday. They were limpy and really sad looking.

Very timely. Yesterday I received an email from Don Cravalho who is one of the top epi vendors. He has just listed a sale on eBay with some incredible prices. Even tho I need a whop upside my head for even considering ordering anything, it's very tempting.

@plantladylin includes Don in her list of epi sellers under the name 'Epiphyllum World'. His seller name on eBay is dcravalho.

I have cuttings from Don and they are healthy and prices were amazing. I have a few people in the Epiphyllum society I order from. Don is a favorite for sure!
I got an epi cutting in a trade last year. I have 90+ cuttings now.
Hard to resist!!!

Tell me about it! There has to be a big greenhouse. And a sunroom. And maybe even some self control someday. But probably not that! Rolling on the floor laughing
