    Lyn, this explains why my succulent cactus would die on me, and here I was thinking I purchased some sick plants. Excellent video. I will have to give them another try. Thank you for sharing. Have a wonderful weekend.

    Actually, epiphytic cacti have no leaves.  What you see are actually stems that are so flattened that they look like leaves.  On the other hand, Opuntias, which are desert plants, do have leaves.  They are very small, appear only on new growth ,and quickly drop  off as the pad grows.  Another cactus that has leaves is the Pereskia genus.  These have large glossy leaves and actually look like some kind of vining rose.  Some Pereskias have leaves tinted with yellow and red, with purple on the bottom side of the leaves.  Very attractive, but they get huge, and they do have areoles and spines.

    Hey Lynn!! WONDERFUL video!! I wanted to ask if you grow any Epiphyllum oxypetalum? I have one thats nearly a year old, and am hoping that within the next year or so it will bloom for me. I had one nearly 15 years ago that got killed outside by an early frost, and that one did flower for me but I honestly cant remember how I got it to bloom, I know they are somewhat temperamental in terms of getting flowers. Any tips? Or if you could do a video on how you get them to flower that would rock lol!! Happy planting from New York!!! 🙂
