Here’s a pic of a cactus I keep inside.
The dark green growth is shooting up from the variegated “ghost” , should I remove it and replant it? The white part isn’t showing new growth, I think the green is stealing the limelight.
Thx again, Karen
Wow – that is a very green sport from that Ghost Euphorbia. I kind of like it, but if you want it can definitely be cut off and replanted into another pot. If you’re stopping by here we can do it for you.
Stemless rosettes to 8″; variable often with red tips

They’re not really muffins, they’re cupcakes. But I like the title Cactus Muffins better than Cactus Cupcakes.
Photo taken from Amy Sedaris’ instagram feed, for some reason, though I suspect she did not make these nor even photograph them. That’s my guess! I could be wrong!
Hello, you once posted a picture of a vine that looked like grass, but it is no longer in your photo data? I am trying to find it but can’t remember it’s name. Does this ring any bells? I thought part of the name had something like tweedia in it but not the tweedia with the blue flowers.

The one you are looking for is called Mormon Tea, Ephedra tweediana. I guess the Tweedy part is the memorable part of the name. Although ironically Ephedra is sometimes used for memory.
That’s a giant Orchid Cactus Flower.
Epiphyllum is a highly hybridized genus. Do we have any idea what the species of this is? No! Someone may choose to identify the variety by the flower, but we prefer to leave it up in the air. So to speak. Epiphytic Plant Joke! Hah!
It’s a species of cactus that comes from Central America generally. And most of the species we call Epiphyllum are more likely actually Disocactus hybrids. Or intergenic hybrids with other plants from the Hylocereeae Cactus Tribe. But this one I am absolutely positively sure is an Epiphyllum. Or not. I don’t know what those Botanists are thinking these days.
That’s a lot of fancy words for a flower this pretty. Enjoy!
is a slow-growing, xerophytic epiphyte… making an attractive, sculptural rosette, 3 feet or more in diameter and over 3 feet high in flower…. The leaf bracts are rosy red; the floral bracts are chartreuse; and the petals of the tubular flowers are red to purple and are very long lasting…
