Love the pinks - I only have the reddish and cream ones.  Looking forward to eating some fruit again after the flowers - seem to remember it tasting something like prickly pears....
Retired - now full-time gardener - and loving it!

Very nice Johan  :clap:  :clap:  :clap:

The pink one is Disocactus phyllanthoides (Epiphyllum German Empress)

Fruit to eat Rena ? I will have to keep an eye on mine but usually the blossoms just drop off - perhaps I should fertilize them ?
Never regret anything that made you smile.

Hi Abby
Thanks for the name.
You must take a brush that you powder your face with to polinate them. They work briliantly.
The fruit is a big delecasy in the North eastern countries. It also smells heavenly when opened.
