(San Francisco Ca.)
This plant you start with a leaf part in water, get roots, plant, and from this base get 3 or 4 leaves and soon have 6" pink trumpet like flowers popping out from the scalloped leaf edge. Mine grown in S.F. Ca. SE. facing 6hr. sun.

Hi Lowell, what a picture! That is a seriously gorgeous plant, and it obviously loves the location. This Epiphyllum is an epiphyte or tree dwelling succulent, and in its native habitat will grow in the crooks of branches high in the air.
You are obviously giving it exactly the right kind of care for it to be blooming so profusely, and you can expect it to live for a long time, flowering every year.
Thanks for sharing your perfect specimen, in very good health.
Happy Succulent Growing!
