Orchid Cactus ‘Whirly Bird’ (Epiphyllum hybrid)

A burst of color arises in the spring with flares of pink, white and orange on this outstanding Orchid Cactus ‘Whirly Bird.’ The 8” blooms create a stunning show for the gardener to enjoy. When given partial sun and dry, cool conditions in the winter, it helps the plant set flower buds that will bloom in spring. We often plant this easy-grower in a hanging basket.

Tips for Success:

   in late winter/early spring; begin watering at this time.

• 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.
