I saw this picture on Pinterest somewhere but there was no info except flowering cactus. Could you tell me more about this plant, how to care for it, etc.
The exact name of the plant is Creatum Epiphyllum kimnachii, it is a Crenate Orchid Cactus and according to Wikipedia it is one of the most important parents in creating the Epiphyllum-hybrids commonly grown throughout the world. Here are some care tips for an Orchid Cactus.
Light: bright lightVery few houseplants should be placed in direct sun. High light refers only to bright indirect light since direct sun often burns the leaves of indoor houseplants. An area that is too hot and dry encourages Spider Mites and causes blooms to quickly fade. A northern exposure really doesn't provide enough light for high light plants. These plants need to be placed directly in front of an east-facing window, within 1-3 feet of a west-facing window, and within 5 ft. of a south facing window. A high light area has over 300 ft. candles of light. but no direct sun
Water: Keep the soil moist but never soggy from late March-November. The plant must rest for about 8 weeks during the winter if you want it to bloom the following year. Reduce your water, but never let the soil totally dry out, until new growth starts to appear in the spring. Your Orchid Cactus needs just enough water to keep the stems from shriveling.
fertilizerPlants need fertilizer only when they are actively growing. Slow growing plants in low light require very little plant food. Too much fertilizer is worse than not enough. Most plants prefer a water soluble plant food at 1/2 the recommended strength. Plants that are in bloom or dormant should not be fertilized. Houseplant food contains nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P), and potassium (K). A fertilizer containing these elements in equal proportion is considered a balanced plant food. Nitrogen helps in photosynthesis and encourages the growth of leaves and stems. Potassium and phosphorus also help in photosynthesis and aid in root and flower development. Most fertilizers have trace elements of other minerals that are lacking in the soil but are necessary for good plant growth. Fertilizers have a high salt content. If a plant is not producing new leaves and doesn’t absorb the fertilizer, salts build up in the soil. These salts can burn the roots, discolor the leaves, and cause new growth to be small.: Feed your Orchid Cactus every two weeks from the end of March to November, when it is actively growing, with a plant food high in potassium diluted to 1/2 the recommended strength.
