Epiphyllum leaves growing alone in a pot look pretty lackluster. Suggestions for plants with similar needs to add to a container? Living in zone 7a.

Any other jungle epiphytes should enjoy the same conditions, like Rhipsalis, Hatiora, Schlumbergera, Selenicereus, other Epiphyllums.

Hello Lisa, it will be a matter of preference for you. Personally, I do not mix the epis with any other plants even if they have similar growing habits, since epis can easily fill the container later on, have such wide leaves and big blooms so they need a good growing space.

I'm tending to agree with tarev. I don't think Epis like to mix with other plants. My initial thought (which I'm sticking with) is to get some other little plants that you like, perhaps some that purpleinopp mentioned, and place the individual containers next to, in front of, or around each other. Just not in the same pot.

Thank you all for good suggestions. Did have luck with epis once.
Then this lalapalooza epi in Baja, Mexico re-inspired me.

Wow! That lalapalooza is definitely inspiring!

I gather that the 2nd picture (with the nice bloom) is the epi that you were asking about. True? If so, you definitely don't want to add any other plant, epi or not, to it. Just surround it with some other plants. Maybe even think about some colorful containers.
