Great Photos Dries, I am almost sure that the first photo is 'King Midas' the second is 'Gladyce Jones' and the third photo looks like 'Pacesetter' the light in the other photos make it hard to put possible names to them.

Kavabonga - so Dries what is this about you not being into cacti - seems like you got a very nice production going there - I am green with envy - My epis are not happy as the Vredehoek vind keep breaking them,,,,but I got a plan......

Your plants and their flowers are magnificent!!!!!

Hi Dries, your epies are beautiful.
The first one is definitely not King Midas.  We have had some confusion in this country with that one.
The real King Midas is very golden and the petals are softer.
The next is Gladyce Jones and that one is 100% correct.
Remind me to check back with you in the blooming season as to the last one.
I received a lot from the Epiphyllum Society of America a few years ago and some have bloomed and are quite different to their name sakes in this country.
Unfortunately the collection has passed through at least 3 hands that I know of and things have got mixed up along the way.
That doesn't change the fact that they are all simply gorgeous though. 
I am a long time addict.
