Morning surprise


By Aleyna

Morning surprise (Epiphyllum oxypetalum)

I have had this epiphyllum for over 10 years. Started to produce after the 3rd year. In Novo Hamburgo it produced more than 30 flowers and opened 18 in one night. This is the first production in São Chico, I was dazzled because in all this time I had never seen it open during the day and sunny.
