If you are looking for a strange and exotic houseplant, Epiphyllum oxypetalum, or Queen of the Night, definitely fits that ticket. And they produce some of the most stunning flowers you will ever see. The blooms only happen at night so it adds to the intrigue!
Light: These plants are epiphytes and grow in shadier locations in the jungle. So be sure not to give them too much direct sun, but at the same time if you place them in too dark of a location, they will not bloom for you.
Water: Like most cacti, queen of the night does not need to be watered often. In fact, over-watering can cause the roots of this cactus to rot, which can be fatal. From spring through fall, queen of the night should be watered once every two weeks. During winter, watering can be cut to about once every four to six weeks depending on how hot your home is.
Non-toxic to people and pets.
