Cactus Family - Cactaceae
Subfamily Cactoideae
Tribals Hylocereeae
This large genus of cactuses epifitni was introduced in botanical nomenclature Adrian Hardy Haworth in 1812, although the first sketchy descriptions are from the middle of the XVIII century. The name comes from the Greek words "epi" - on, over or "phyllon" - sheet associated with the apparent similarity of the long, broad and flat or trirabi spineless stems, especially in the highlight of their part of the leaves, and this explains the previous name the genus Phyllocactus (Filokaktus). Among the vast amount of plants grown in artificial conditions, because of the splendor of their colors, Epifilumite could easily be put in the forefront. Caused great surprise, how these nondescript, flattened, dissected stalks may unexpectedly show buds that are developing rapidly in large buds, which, after the sunset turn into beautiful colors, amazing in its structure and size.
Have flattened stems that have shaped leaves.
All species have large and beautiful flowers, which open in the evening and lasted several days. They have the most - often form a funnel, often reaching 30 cm blooms the second or third year after rooting.

Beauty to rank epifiluma orchid.

By - popular types are: Epiphyllum oxypetalum, E. phyllanthus, F. crenatum, E. darrahii, E. hookeri and others.
