Orchid Cactus ‘Clown’ (Epiphyllum hybrid)
Orchid Cactus ‘Clown’ makes a great hanging basket with its large, colorful, oversized blooms. The eye-catching flowers have white inner petals that are blushed with pink and raspberry and its outer petals are deep raspberry-red. In their native habitat, epiphyllums grow in trees and like partially filtered sun. In a home environment, it’s best grown in porous cactus soil. Once the plants have mature leaves and are ready to flower, dry down the soil starting in November until buds can be seen on last year’s growth. Another trick to flowering is to keep the plant below 60°F but above freezing during the dry period. This chill and dryness stimulates flower bud formation.

Tips for Success:


• Totally restrict water from November until buds begin to appear
   in late winter/early spring; begin watering at this time.


• Keep nighttime temperatures from the mid 50°’s to
   high 30°'s during the winter.

• Blooms open sequentially over 2-3 weeks in the spring.

• Increase moisture and fertilizer in the summertime.

• Flowers form off of last years growth of summer.

• Only prune after flowering.

• Use a well drained, porous potting mix.
